WASHINGTON, DC - Folks will still be getting mail on Saturday, at least until the end of September.
The U.S. Congress recently passed a continuing resolution that "has prohibited implementation of a new national delivery schedule for mail and packages, which would consist of package delivery Monday through Saturday and mail delivery Monday through Friday, and which would have taken effect the week of Aug. 5, 2013," according to a USPS news release.
The USPS Board "believes that Congress has left it with no choice but to delay this implementation at this time," the release continues.
Postal service officials have said that dropping Saturday mail delivery would result in about $2 billion a year in savings.
We'll have more on this developing story as information becomes available.
