WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt.—U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders says he hopes the Senate will vote on legislation that will keep open the mail processing center in White River Junction.

Sanders said Tuesday that the U.S. Postal Service has developed a new list of mail processing plants that will remain open. The White River Junction facility, which employs about 250 worker, is on that list.

The struggling postal service had agreed to delay the closing of thousands of local post offices until May so that Congress could pass legislation to shore up the agency's finances.

Sanders says he hopes the Senate will pass legislation on Wednesday that will keep about half of the 250 mail processing plants slated to close open.
