Postal Service Can’t Cut Saturday Delivery, U.S. GAO Says

The U.S. Postal Service doesn’t have the legal authority to cut Saturday mail delivery, the Government Accountability Office said today.

The service is bound by law to deliver mail six days a week, and is incorrect in interpreting that a temporary measure used to fund U.S. government operations released it from that requirement, the GAO said in a letter to Representative Gerald Connolly, a Virginia Democrat, who requested that the watchdog agency look at the matter.
