Steven Mnuchin on Monday said there still might be an affect Congress for more federal coronavirus aid, each day after U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also voiced optimism despite the Senate’s failure to pass an aid bill last week.
“I will still work on this. I’ve told the speaker I’m available anytime to barter, no conditions,” he told CNBC in an interview.
Efforts to supply additional aid amid the continued novel coronavirus pandemic have stalled all summer whilst the amount of U.S. cases continues to climb, now exceeding 6.5 million. quite 194,000 people within us have died from COVID-19, which has also rocked the nation’s economy.
Pelosi and fellow Democrats who control the House of Representatives passed their $3.4 trillion aid bill in mid-May. The Republican-led Senate did not get traction on a $1 trillion counterproposal before taking over a slimmed-down $300 billion measure last week that did not pass.
