UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICES

In a move to help ensure the future of the nation’s mail system, the Postal Service announced today the completion of its area mail processing consolidation studies announced in September 2011.
Implementation would not occur before before May 15, 2012, due to the Postal Service’s commitment to members of the U.S. Senate not to close or consolidate any postal facility prior to that date.
