    Senate to take up US Postal Service bill next week - Reuters

    The leading postal bill in the House of Representatives, which would create oversight groups to close post offices and establish mail delivery holidays instead of ending Saturday mail altogether, will be considered by the House Rules Committee on Monday.

    A House subcommittee also will hold a hearing Tuesday on the Postal Service's five-year business plan, released last month.

    The plan drew scrutiny for proposing postage rate increases and plans to establish a separate health program instead of enrolling employees in federal health programs.
