Postal Service backs down on ending Saturday mail delivery
WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- The U.S. Postal Service has backed down on ending Saturday mail delivery, saying Congress gave it no choice.
The announcement came down Wednesday morning in a statement from the agency's Board of Governors.
The Postal Service said in February that it planned to cut back in August to five-day-a-week deliveries for everything except packages, as a way to hold down losses. But a statement on Wednesday notes that Congress has passed a spending bill that continues the long-time prohibition against reducing delivery days.
As a result, the board says it believe that Congress "has left it with no choice but to delay implementation" of the five-day-a-week plan.
