BISHOP STATEMENT REGARDING UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE FIVE-DAY MAIL DELIVERY

Feb 6, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) released a quote regarding the recent news that the United States Postal Service (USPS) will be cutting Saturday mail delivery beginning August 1, 2013 in order to trim costs.

“While I understand the financial challenges currently facing the United States Postal Service and its need to reduce costs, many people rely on timely mail delivery in Southwest and Middle Georgia,” said Congressman Bishop. “The House of Representatives needs to pass a postal reform bill, much like the Senate did last Congress, so that the Postal Service can get their fiscal house in order and provide the mail service that all Americans require.”
