Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings is one of a group of lawmakers that are trying to push through legislation that would overhaul how the United States Postal service does business, Federal Times reports.

Cummings and Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., say they're close to producing a bill that would bring about several changes to the fledgling system, which officials say is losing money hand over fist.

The legislation comes just more than a week after the USPS backed off plans to end Saturday mail service nationwide, a move they said would have saved the agency $2 billion.
