The Nation

December 14, 1987

A Senate budget-cutting plan that would shift nearly $2 billion in costs to the U.S. Postal Service could force an end to Saturday mail delivery, cause sharp cuts in post office hours and halt hundreds of construction projects, postal officials warned. Postmaster General Preston R. Tisch has called a press conference for today to discuss the possible effects of the proposal, which besides shifting costs to his agency would also give it a spending limit, specify areas to be cut and ban a rate increase to cover the new expenses. The proposal is not included in House-passed budget legislation and will have to be settled this week in conference committee.
