Congressmen help convince the Postal Service to drop rural cost-cutting measures
At least two Wisconsin congressmen have helped convince the U.S. Postal Service to drop rural cost-cutting measures, after residents complained.
Postal officials say they need to cut $2 billion nationally, to off-set revenue losses caused by the fact that more of us use e-mail and pay our bills online.
More than 30 rural communities in southeast Wisconsin have had their carriers transferred to nearby towns as part of consolidations.
