WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- The United States Postal Service is lobbying for permission to cut Saturday home mail delivery in an effort to save money.
The agency ended up $297 million in debt from October through December, which is usually its best season because of holiday mailings.
The Postal Service has pitched this idea in the past but the plan got a cold reception from Congress. This latest effort comes with consultant findings supporting the reduction as well as other changes.
Postmaster General John Potter is also expected to raise the possibility of higher rates.
