Congress, GAO move to block USPS service cuts

Published on .

Washington, D.C.—Congress and the Government Accountability Office took steps Thursday to block the U.S. Postal Service's plan to eliminate most Saturday delivery, a move the USPS says it needs to help it regain solvency. Congress passed legislation that requires six-day delivery. This move was supported by the GAO in a legal opinion presented to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
