The U.S. Postal Service will stop delivering mail on Saturdays in an effort to cut costs for the financially struggling government agency, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.
USPS will save $2 billion annually and will begin the cut in August. Package delivery will continue.
USPS Washington, D.C.-area spokesman George Maffett told POLITICO that USPS will issue a five-year financial plan in early March, some of which will be announced later Wednesday, though he did not confirm that Saturday mail delivery was stopping.
