Postmaster Proposes a Cutback in Mail Delivery

What’s next? No electricity between 12 noon and 4 p.m.?

Postmaster General John E. Potter asked Congress to allow him to cut mail delivery from six days to five days a week.

In testimony prepared for a Senate hearing this afternoon, Potter said he needs “flexibility in the number of days we deliver mail.”

“The ability to suspend delivery on the lightest delivery days, for example, could save dollars in both our delivery and our processing and distribution networks, he said. “I do not make this request lightly, but I am forced to consider every option given the severity of our challenge.”

He said the cut in mail delivery would be no more than one day a week.

The last time we visited cutbacks to the mail service was during Saint Reagan’s tenure, when his unsubstaniated taxcuts blew a hole in the Federal budget and his economic team was left scrambling to try and stop the hemorrhaging.
