Congresswoman Cheri Bustos Statement on Postal Service Plan to End Saturday Mail Delivery

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IL-17) issued the following statement following an announcement from the United States Postal Service that it will end Saturday mail delivery:

“Today’s announcement from the Postal Service indicating an end to Saturday mail service is a blow to communities across our region of Illinois.  Time and again, I’ve heard from small business owners, seniors, and others in both small towns and big cities in my district that Saturday mail service is crucially important to them. 

“It is because of the concerns of constituents like this that I urge Congress to come together to find a common sense solution that protects Saturday mail service.”
