Saturday mail delivery part of spending bill passed by congress

Posted: Updated:

14News learned on Thursday night that the Saturday Mail Delivery is part of the spending bill passed by congress.

But some lawmakers and postal officials say plans to cut Saturday service should proceed.

In February, the postal service announced it would switch in August to five-day service for first-class mail but continue six-day package delivery.

The government at the time was running on a temporary spending measure.

The sweeping funding bill was approved on Thursday without any changes to the current mail schedule.
