Las Vegas Review Journal: Reid challenges Postal Service move to end Saturday delivery

WASHINGTON - Sen. Harry Reid is challenging the U.S. Postal Service's move to halt Saturday delivery of first-class mail, saying that is a decision for Congress to make, and not the agency.

Reid, the Senate majority leader from Nevada, said Postmaster General Patrick Donohoe got bad legal advice in announcing this week that weekend mail delivery would stop in August, a cost-cutting move to save about $2 billion.

"Such a drastic policy change cannot be enacted without approval from Congress," Reid said. "This short-sighted measure will deal a crippling blow to the millions of Americans and small businesses who rely on the timely and reliable delivery to every community in our nation."
