Plan to cut Saturday mail delivery on hold

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – A plan to cut Saturday mail delivery is on hold.

According to the U.S. Postal Service, the delay is Congress’ fault.

The initial plan in August was to cut back mail delivery of everything except packages to only five days a week.

The Postal Service’s Board of Governors says Congress has passed a spending bill that does not allow them cut back services.

The post office says it has no choice but to put off the plan to only deliver mail five days a week.
