Speaker Pelosi: $2.2T Coronavirus Economic Relief Bill Will Pass House on Friday ‘With Strong Bipartisan Support’

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is forecasting quick bipartisan approval of the massive $2.2 trillion coronavirus economic relief bill approved by the Senate. The Senate unanimously passed the bill late Wednesday. Pelosi says the House will vote on the package Friday and she expects it will pass with “strong bipartisan support.” The package comes as fresh evidence emerges that the U.S. is sinking into recession.  The government on Thursday reported 3.3 million new weekly unemployment claims, four times the previous record. President Donald Trump has implored lawmakers to finish the package so he can sign it into law.
