Congress Kills 5-Day Delivery

Congress Kills 5-Day DeliveryThe US Postal Service Board of Governors met yesterday to discuss the Continuing Resolution recently passed by Congress to fund government operations.  Congress included restrictive language as it pertains to 5-Day Delivery which specifically prohibits a new national delivery schedule for mail the US PMG Pat Donahoe wanted to implement the week of August 5, 2013.
The statement released by the Board said; “Although disappointed with this Congressional action, the Board will follow the law and has directed the Postal Service to delay implementation of its new delivery schedule until legislation is passed that provides the Postal Service with the authority to implement a financially appropriate and responsible delivery schedule.”
