Foster statement on USPS plan to end Saturday mail service

U.S. Rep. Bill Foster, D-Naperville, issued the following news release:

Congressman Bill Foster, D-Naperville, expressed disappointment in the USPS plan to end Saturday mail service and released the following statement:

“Congress has repeatedly shown bipartisan opposition to attempts to end Saturday mail service. Millions of small businesses, seniors and others rely on Saturday service, and it should not be first on the chopping block to solve the financial problems the USPS faces.

“The United States Postal Service is an important institution that our country relies on – I encourage Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe to work to find a path to balancing the USPS budget that improves and streamlines services instead of cutting back.”
