The future of the US Postal Service is in question.

Next week, the US Senate will take up a bill to dramatically reduce the agency.

The proposal includes closing 3,600 post offices, ending Saturday delivery within two years, and then lay-off of 100,000 workers.

The postal service lost $5 billion last year and the Post Master General says if it was a private company bankruptcy would be their only option.

Iowa Senator Charles Grassley says he supports the proposed changes saying if difficult decisions aren’t made now, the problem will only get worse.
