Mandate government payment like SS. tax refunds, etc. be direct deposit. Require banks to allow people who receive government payments no fee accounts with checks/debit card or maybe pickup point for preloaded cards with direct deposit to card.. Boo Hoo if business can't send you junk mail flyers, magazines, bills, etc.
Maybe mandate every TV be able to send/receive email or do a new set top box coupon like they did for digital conversion. Go crazy and make it a full blown computer that uses the TV screen and a wireless keyboard and mouse with option of dial up or broadband connection and optional dumb down help menus. Good way to roll out internet to all homes.
Maybe magazine subscriptions include a kindle or something similar.
If physical paper is real important there is always UPS, FedX and others.
