Washington, DC –Today, the United States Postal Service announced that beginning this summer it will stop delivering mail on Saturdays. In response, Congresswoman Shea-Porter has asked to be added as a cosponsor to H.Res 30, which expresses the sense of the House that the Postal Service should maintain six-day delivery.
“The US Postal Service is a vital resource for communities throughout our state and our country,” said Congresswoman Shea-Porter. “Eliminating Saturday mail-delivery does not adequately address the issues facing the United States Postal Service. This is the wrong approach because the Postal Service will lose vital business and consumers will be hurt.”
