Saving The U.S. Postal Service From Collapse

Posted: Updated:

WMDT 47 NEWS - As the nation creeps towards that fiscal cliff, the U.S. Postal Service is nearing a financial collapse of its own.

Just Thursday, we heard that bombshell announcement that the postal service has lost a whopping $15.9 billion. For some time, mail processing centers have been in jeopardy, like the one in Easton. Local officials have expressed the need to pass a postal reform legislation.

"The Post Office looks like it's come up with plans to cut hours in some of rural post offices to save dollars, but we're waiting to hear what the post master general's other plans are. If we need additional legislation, I think this Spring we're going to deal with that," said Maryland Congressman Andy Harris.

Both Democrats and Republicans tell WMDT they're on board with the passing of some kind of bill to help the U.S. postal service.
