Finally some good news.

From the article:

In a rare move of bipartisan support, the Senate passed a bill Tuesday night that will shore up the U.S. Postal Service's finances, providing support for the struggling agency and also ensuring service six days of the week.

The Postal Service Reform Act, approved by a 79-19 vote, cleared the House with overwhelming support last month. It comes after decades of losses from the Postal Service, while reliance on mail delivery only increased during the pandemic.

The bill aims to both cut costs and ensure more transparency. In addition to operating six days a week, the USPS will be required to create an online dashboard with data to track national delivery times. The USPS will also no longer have to pre-fund health benefits to its employees, which would save about $27 billion over the next 10 years.
