Postal Service bid to end Saturday delivery fades away


Federal Times reports, “In 2010 the Postal Service laid out a series of reforms it said were needed to cut billions of dollars from its operating costs and help the agency survive and thrive in a more digital future.

The biggest pitch: Ending Saturday delivery for letters, which the Postal Service had estimated would save about $3 billion annually.

But years later an improving financial landscape and a Congress continually deadlocked over Postal Service reform has led to a slow and quiet death for what was once seen as the linchpin of a revitalized Postal Service.”
