WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. Postal Service says it will delay plans to cut Saturday mail delivery because Congress isn't allowing the change.
The Postal Service said in February that it planned to cut back in August to five-day-a-week deliveries for everything except packages, as a way to hold down losses.
But a statement Wednesday from agency's Board of Governors noted that Congress has passed a spending bill that continues the long-time prohibition against reducing delivery days.
As a result, the board said it believe that Congress "has left it with no choice but to delay implementation" of the five-day-a-week plan.
