Postal Service Circumvents Congressional Will?

Updated 7 years ago From a Rep. Nick Rahall Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.) issued the following statement in response to the U.S. Postal Service’s announcement that it would discontinue six-day mail delivery service beginning in August of this year:   


“The Postal Service cannot circumvent the will of the Congress, which has been explicit in requiring the continuance of six-day mail delivery service for the last thirty years.  Whatever basis the Postal Service is claiming to discontinue Saturday mail delivery, it runs counter to the spirit and letter of the law, and I intend to press hard to ensure that the Postal Service abides by the law.  The Postal Service needs to look at other ways to balance its books rather than cutting off rural customers and undermining its public service obligations.”
