WASHINGTON The U.S. Postal Service plans to end Saturday mail deliveries beginning as soon as August to cut financial losses, according to a spokesman for the service.
The service, which lost $15.9 billion last year, would need congressional approval to end the Saturday deliveries.
The service would continue six-day deliveries of packages, the official said.
By ending the Saturday delivery of letters, the service would reduce costs by as much as $2 billion a year.
