It’s a move that could save 17 Bend postal jobs. The Postal Reform Bill passed by the U.S. Senate yesterday likely means Bend will keep its mail-processing center. "The 21st Century Postal Service Act" includes provisions that require the postal service to maintain overnight delivery for certain pieces mailed within the same processing area.   The U.S. Postal Service in February announced its intentions to close all processing centers in Oregon except those in Portland and Medford; that means Bend would close. Post Office officials have said that closing the bend center could save the postal service as much as $2.1 million a year.
