Oregon’s Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden joined 22 other senators in challenging the Postmaster General's authority to discontinue Saturday mail delivery without Congressional approval.

 

The Senators signed a letter to Postmaster General Patrick Donohoe that acknowledges the financial challenges the Post Office is facing and urged him to work with Congress to solve the problems.

 

They pointed out the a shift to a 5-day service could lead to more declines in mail volume and revenues, making things worse.

 

They also pointed out that the Postal Service has recognized that they do not have the power to terminate 6-day service themselves.

 

Both Senators say that limiting delivery to 5 days would impact about 70,000 jobs and a $5.2 billion loss as well as negatively affecting rural communities.

 

The next move is up to the U.S.P.S.
