Bill would end door-to-door mail for 15 million people

A House committee has approved a proposal that would end door-to-door mail delivery for millions of Americans in favor of communal or curbside boxes.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee approved the measure on an 18-13 party-line vote Wednesday. The bill would direct the U.S. Postal Service to convert 15 million addresses over the next decade to the less costly, but also less convenient delivery method.

Converting to communal or curbside delivery would save $2 billion annually, Quoting from estimates that door delivery costs $380 annually per address compared with $240 for curbside and $170 for centralized methods.

It is interesting to see how the government is trying to cut costs and what is acceptable and what is not. Not end to Saturday mail, but lets take away door-to-door mail for 15 million people.
