Pending Congressional approval, the United States Postal Service wants to stop the delivery of first-class mail on Saturdays, effective in August.
The USPS continues to report dramatically decreased levels of first-class mail, mainly due to internet technology.
Saturday mail would still be available at post office boxes, as mail facilities which are currently open on Saturdays would remain open six days. Saturday package delivery would continue. The Postal Service says package delivery has increased by fourteen percent over the last three years.
Postal officials believe the move could save about two billion dollars.
