Default APA/NNA redouble efforts to save Saturday delivery

The National Newspaper Association (NNA), along with other newspaper industry groups, including the Arkansas Press Association (APA), continue their efforts to prevent the United States Postal Service (USPS) from doing away with Saturday delivery. On Monday NNA filed its formal opposition to the USPS proposal to end Saturday mail delivery. NNA has intervened on behalf of its newspapers in a proceeding before the Postal Regulatory Commission, which will issue an advisory opinion later this year. The final decision on six-day mail delivery will be made by Congress, which has reaffirmed Saturday mail requirements annually for nearly 30 years.

The Postal Service said it expects to save $3.1 billion a year from the cutbacks, but the newspaper associations argue that the USPS has grossly underestimated the publicís concern about the change. The move would also seriously hurt smaller newspapers with late week editions who depend on the Postal Service for distribution.
