It's looking like Americans will continue getting their Saturday morning mail after all.
The U.S. Postal Service announced Wednesday that it would cancel original plans to end Saturday mail delivery this summer.
The postal service's Board of Governors made the decision Tuesday, saying the new Stopgap Budget that Congress recently passed would prohibit the move from happening. The short-term budget was approved to fund the government through the end of the fiscal year includes requiring the six days of mail delivery.
It was announced back in February that the postal service planned to halt Saturday mail delivery starting in August. The move would save the agency $2 billion a year. The postal service lost $15.9 billion last year.
