Five-day postal delivery plan expected this month

By Published on .

Washington, D.C.—The U.S. Postal Service is expected to deliver this month a plan to eliminate Saturday delivery, according to Postal Regulatory Commission Chairman Ruth Y. Goldway.

Testifying Thursday before a Senate appropriations subcommittee, Goldway said the submission of such a plan would trigger “established procedures” to analyze the plan, including public testimony. In addition to feedback from individuals and businesses in Washington, opinion also may be solicited through “field hearings” by the PRC in various parts of the country, she said.

Goldway said the PRC would issue its opinion about five-day postal delivery six to nine months after the testimonial phase is concluded.
