WASHINGTON Jan 23 U.S. House of
Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Friday she
believed Congress would meet a mid-February deadline to send an
economic stimulus package to President Barack Obama.
"We're on schedule for our timetable to have a bill on the
president's desk to be signed before the Presidents Day recess.
Again, if not, there will be no recess," Pelosi, a California
Democrat, told reporters after a meeting between Obama and
congressional leaders from both parties.
The U.S. Presidents Day holiday is Feb. 16.
Asked whether he was worried that Republicans would block
the stimulus package, Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry
Reid said "No."
