WASHINGTON --Budget cuts are common in today's economy, and lately, in the U.S. Postal Service.
But, Action News' Scott MacFarlane has discovered some frivolous weekend spending from the company that stopped delivering on Saturdays.
His report made it to the U.S. House Oversight Committee in Washington, which have revised paying for all 400 executives trip to the National Postal Forum in San Francisco. The $2 million trip is the kind of spending Controller for the Office of Management and Budget, Daniel Werfel, wants to stop.
"There has been significant attention to this matter and aggressive action to cut back on this type of spending," Werfel said.
The trip (vacation) includes: a golf outing, dance party and a "taste of San Francisco" dinner event, but the committee's recent action will make executives responsible for the golf portion. Still, the USPS reported no change in the cost or attendance to the March excursion.
