WASHINGTON (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - A long known about budget crisis for a federal agency is continuing to cause problems.

The Postmaster General is lobby lawmakers to do away with Saturday mail delivery.

Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe says, “What we are proposing is this, keep the post office open to allow customers to receive mail through post office boxes on Saturday, but we would eliminate regular delivery on Saturday and regular collection. We would deliver express mail on Saturday so there would still be service but we would take three billion dollars in cost out of our network."

Donahoe went on to say if changes aren't made to the current law, disruption to delivery would have a significant impact on America’s business and the economy.
