USPO likely to continue Saturday deliveries through 2015

There is finally a bit of good news coming from the Post Office. According to a recent press release, the CEO of the National Newspaper Association (NNA) states that it is highly likely that the six-day mandate for 2015 will be passed by Congress this fall. This means that the Post Office’s battle to cut Saturday deliveries will be sidelined for another year. Of course, with Congress nothing is certain, but it does seem like the tenuous alliance between Democrats and rural Republicans will hold, and the steady march towards more and more service cuts will be halted, at least temporarily. It is hoped that this will give the NNA and other concerned bodies time to present responsible alternatives to service cuts to help the USPS regain financial stability.
