Saturday Mail Delivery Must Continue, House Committee Requires
A key House committee has once again voted to block the U.S. Postal Service from eliminating Saturday delivery, attaching an amendment to a spending bill that would require the agency to deliver mail six days per week. The amendment, introduced with bipartisan support by Reps. Jose Serrano, D-N.Y., and Tom Latham, R-Iowa, was approved easily by the full Appropriations Committee … The six-day rider has been included in every postal-related appropriations bill since 1983. Several members of the committee from both parties spoke during Wednesday’s markup in support of the amendment.
