Today, Congresswoman Karen Bass (D-Calif) issued the following statement in response to the announcement of the Postal Service's announcement that it will end Saturday delivery:

"As the proud daughter of a letter carrier, it's disappointing that USPS has been forced to stop Saturday delivery service. The financial burdens requiring the Postal Service to pre-fund pension benefits are unreasonably high and need reform. Congress must work to enact comprehensive reform that provides the tools and resources the Postal Service needs to survive and innovate in the 21st Century."
