The US Postal Service is one step closer to ending Saturday mail delivery. That's because its Board of Governors has agreed to ask the Postal Regulatory Commission for an opinion on the matter.
The plan would limit mail delivery for homes and businesses to weekdays only.
The Postal Service lost nearly 4 billion dollars last year and expects to lose up to 7 billion this year. The losses stem from increased use of e-mail and other delivery services.
A change to 5-day-a-week delivery would require the approval of Congress.
