Corker Disappointed in Postal Service Decision to Delay Reforms

Statement

U.S. Senator Bob Corker, R-Tenn., today expressed disappointment in the Postal Service's decision to delay implementation of 5-day delivery of some postal products. According to a statement from the United States Postal Service Board of Governors, Congress left the Postal Service "with no choice but to delay implementation" of the five-day-a-week plan.

The Postal Service estimated it would save roughly $2 billion a year by moving to 5-day delivery of some postal products.

"I'm very disappointed the Postal Service has succumbed to congressional pressure and is delaying implementation of a cost-saving 5-day delivery plan, and I fear that by continuing to hamstring the Postal Service, Congress is hastening its demise and probably adding additional financial burdens to U.S. taxpayers," said Corker.
