US must be open to second economic stimulus-Hoyer

WASHINGTON, July 7 (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said on Tuesday that leaders need to be open to the possibility of a second stimulus package to further boost the ailing economy.

It was too soon to tell whether the $787 billion package approved in February had been successful, Hoyer told reporters, but “I think we need to be open to whether we need additional action.” (Reporting by Susan Cornwell, Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
