WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service wants to end door-to-door delivery for new homes in favor of curbside service and neighborhood cluster boxes.

A House panel is considering legislation that would take that one step further, phasing out door-to-door delivery for nearly all Americans.

The proposal is part of a broad reform effort designed to cut costs at the cash-strapped agency by up to $4.5 billion a year. The Postal Service had a $16 billion loss last year.

In a change the Postal Service began in April, people moving into newly built homes will receive curbside or neighborhood cluster box service.
