Trump is now the first president to sign an executive order, meaning that his Flat Rate E-mail will no longer be required by law.
Trump also has the ability to sign a bill or regulation that requires the Flat Rate envelope to be used.
The new order, which was just released on Friday, says that President Donald Trump will “authorize and authorize the use of the flat rate e-mail for executive correspondence, including executive branch communication.”
It adds, “In the event that the President determines that it is appropriate, the flat rates of each envelope may be used for executive communications in a manner that is consistent with the purposes for which the flat Rate e-mails were authorized.”
The new flat rate policy does not apply to Presidential or Vice Presidential e-mails.
As part of the Flatrate initiative, Trump is also directing the Secretaries of State and Homeland Security to work with the Office of Management and Budget and the Office for Federal Procurement Policy to develop “new streamlined and streamlined flat rate envelopes to meet the unique needs of the Federal Government.”
“The Flat Rate is a great example of how the President’s actions on behalf of the American people have resulted in a positive impact for our country and his Cabinet,” said White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
“The President’s Flat Rate initiative is part of his commitment to improving government efficiency and saving money, and we will continue to work closely with the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Secret Service to ensure that the new flat rates are used for proper purposes.”
