WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday that a bipartisan group of lawmakers has made “great progress” in talks aimed at hammering out an agreement to deliver COVID-19 relief to American families and businesses.
Pelosi, who views the bipartisan talks as the path forward for Congress to enact a new “emergency supplemental” package of coronavirus aid, told reporters that she still needs to see legislative text from the group.
“But I think they’ve made great progress,” Pelosi said. “I think the values and the priorities that they’ve established are what we need to do right away.”
