WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer on Thursday said Congress would get right to work on President-elect Joe Biden’s stimulus package.
“The emergency relief framework announced by the incoming Biden-Harris administration tonight is the right approach,” Pelosi and Schumer said in a joint statement. “We will get right to work to turn President-elect Biden’s vision into legislation that will pass both chambers and be signed into law.”
