Congressman Blake Farenthold, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Subcommittee on the U.S. Postal Service and Federal workforce released the following statement today on the United States Postal Service plan to end Saturday delivery.

"The move today by the Postal Service to end Saturday delivery is a step in the right direction. This $2 billion a year savings will ensure that taxpayers are not left footing the bill in the future. It is important to remember this plan only applies to mail, like bills and magazines. Packages and mail-order medicine will still be delivered on Saturday, and post offices open on Saturday will remain open. The USPS has put forward a responsible plan that helps them regain their financial solvency."
