WASHINGTON (Reuters) - House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Wednesday the coronavirus relief legislation agreed in the U.S. Senate goes a long way toward meeting the needs of the American people and House Democrats will now review the bill.

“This bipartisan legislation takes us a long way down the road in meeting the needs of the American people,” Pelosi said in a statement. “While the compromise does not go as far as our Take Responsibility for Workers and Families Act, thanks to the unity and insistence of Senate and House Democrats, the bill has moved a great deal closer to America’s workers.”
