H.R. 6303 would require the Postal Service (USPS) to establish new ZIP codes for seven communities located in New York, Florida, and Nevada. Based on information from the USPS, CBO estimates that phasing in additional ZIP codes would increase the agency’s administrative and mail delivery costs by about $1 million in fiscal year 2017. USPS cash flows are recorded in the federal budget in the Postal Service Fund and are classified as off-budget.
H.R. 6303 also would name ten post offices. CBO estimates that naming those facilities specified by the bill would result in negligible costs for the Postal Service.
Enacting the bill would not affect on-budget direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 6303 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2027.
H.R. 6303 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would impose no costs on state, local, or tribal governments.
