(WHAS 11)--Mail delivery on Saturdays may survive after all.

The US Postal Service says it will delay plans to cut Saturday mail delivery because congress isn't allowing the change.

The post office announced in February that it planned to go to a five day week starting in August as a way to cut costs.

The agency’s board of governors said that congress has passed a spending bill that continues the long time prohibition against reducing delivery days.

As a result, the board says congress has left it with no choice but to delay implementation of the five day delivery plan.
