The House of Representatives may soon send a message to the United States Postal Service — you’d better deliver the mail six days a week.
Facing falling revenues, the USPS has suggested a series of cutbacks, including eliminating Saturday mail service.
That didn’t set well with four representatives, who introduced HRes 173 Friday: “A resolution expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that the United States Postal Service should take all appropriate measures to ensure the continuation of its 6-day mail delivery service.”
The resolution, sent to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, is sponsored by Reps. Samuel Graves, R-Mo.; Nick Rahall, D-W.Va.; Chris Smith, R-N.J.; and Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif.
