House Bill Would Continue Saturday Mail Delivery

A bill passed by the U.S. House of Representatives would ensure that the U.S. Postal Service continues Saturday mail service for the rest of the fiscal year, Rep. Jose Serrano (D-N.Y.) said.

The measure was part of a larger funding bill that would stop the government from shutting down at the end of March, according to House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.).

The Postal Service announced plans last month to eliminate Saturday mail delivery, beginning in August, to reduce costs by as much as $2 billion a year.

Package carriers such as UPS Inc. and FedEx Corp. have said they do not expect major changes if the Postal Service goes through with the plan.
