When Congress reconvenes from its Easter break Monday, it will continue work on a bill that would end Saturday mail delivery. Letter carriers in Macon and Marietta rallied Thursday against that bill, which would also end door-to-door delivery for 35 million homes and businesses.
The U.S. Postal Service has agreed to delay the closing of 252 mail processing centers and 3,700 local post offices until mid-May. The cash-strapped agency, which is forecast to lose a record $14.1 billion next year, announced last week it was moving forward on cutbacks.
