(CNN) — A group of Senators introduced a bi-partisan legislation to reform the United States Postal Service.
The 2021 Postal Service Reform Act would cut the requirement for the post office to pre-fund its pension for retirees.
That financial burden has been a massive drain on the agency’s budget for years.
The bill would also integrate retirees’ healthcare with Medicare.
Lawmakers say those two reforms would save the Postal Service more than $45 billion over the next 10 years.
The bill would require USPS to continue to deliver mail at least six days a week.
The agency has floated the idea of stopping Saturday deliveries as a cost saving measure.
