Minnesotans Rally To Save Saturday Mail Service
Minnesotans in Duluth and Minneapolis could be found rallying on Sunday to save the recently-cut Saturday mail service. The rallies were held to pressure the federal government into preserving the six-day-a-week service.
The postal service has stated that it could save billions of dollars by reducing Saturday mail delivery to packages only.
Local lawmakers attended the rallies, including Sen. Al Franken and Congresmman Rick Nolan, who were present at the Duluth site. Senator Amy Klobuchar also wrote a letter of support that was read at the rally.
National Public Radio announced last week that law-makers in Washington are in disagreement about whether the U.S. Postal Service is legally obligated to deliver Saturday mail.
