Graves' Reaction to Proposal to End 6-Day Delivery02/06/13
Washington—Congressman Sam Graves released the following statement today on the United States Postal Service plan to end Saturday delivery.
“I do not support the United States Postal Service plan to end Saturday delivery. The USPS does need reform, however, reducing core services is not a long-term plan. I worry that reducing services will lead to other reductions like closing rural post offices.
There is still a large group of people – particularly in rural areas – whose lifeline to the outside world is the Postal Service. Whether it’s their social security check, an important document or even just a card from a loved one. I’ve introduced a sense of Congress, asking the postal service to keep mail delivery at 6 days a week.”
