Section 706 of this Act sets forth provisions relating to postage rates for books and certain other materials. Section 707 states that it is the sense of the Congress that any legislation, enacted after September 30, 1994, which would have the effect of expanding the classes of mail or kinds of mailers eligible for reduced rates of postage should provide for sufficient funding to ensure that neither any losses to the United States Postal Service nor any increase in the rate of postage for any of the other classes of mail or kinds of mailers will result. Section 708 provides for several technical corrections to the Act.
