Senator Mark Pryor is firing back at the decision by the postmaster to eliminate Saturday mail delivery.
Pryor says he knows the Postal Service is facing serious financial challenges, but he is concerned that switching to a five-day delivery system will hurt Arkansas' rural communities, who depend on them for medications, checks and other important services.
Pryor says he's committed to working hard to find a long-term solution.
