Pelosi: House, Trump come to agreement on coronavirus bill

Saturday morning with overwhelming bipartisan support. The legislation was approved by a 363-40 vote shortly after midnight.

"We still have a long way to go", he said. That said, a recurring monthly pledge of any amount through Patreon can help us deliver more content, and more in-depth coverage throughout the region.

Byrne said the bill contained "110" pages requesting that "billions of dollars" be spent, and mandates on small businesses.

The Senate comes back to Capitol Hill on Monday and could approve the bill quickly to get it to President Trump's desk. The president congratulated the bill's passage, calling it "good teamwork" between Republicans and Democrats.

Above all, Pelosi said in a statement, "This legislation is about testing, testing, testing".

The legislation will now move to the Senate, which is expected to take it up next week.

In a statement released just after the House vote, around 1 a.m. Saturday, McConnell encouraged senators to "carefully review" the House bill but telegraphed support for some form of economic assistance related to the pandemic. Mo Brooks, Robert Aderholt, Martha Roby, Gary Palmer and Terri Sewell.

Representatives Tom Reed [R-23] and John Katko [R-24] both voted in favor of the coronavirus response act alongside Rep. Joseph Morelle [D-25] and other Democrats.

As of Friday afternoon, coronavirus infections confirmed by lab tests were approaching 2,000, with at least 41 deaths, according to a New York Times database.

"We don't think the Democrats are giving enough", the president said after a speech in the White House Rose Garden where he declared a national emergency.

Sick people across the USA say they are being denied the coronavirus test, as American states scramble to slow the spread of COVID-19 and stop hospitals from being overwhelmed with a surge in critically ill patients. She was one of the lawmakers introducing the no cost COVID19 testing on Tuesday.

Flanked by executives from healthcare companies and retailers, Trump outlined his own moves to expand testing amid widespread criticism that the U.S. has lagged behind other countries.

"As our nation grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, we need to make sure that families across this country have the resources they need to take care of themselves and their loved ones".

The bill is not only aimed at protecting Americans from the virus that is sweeping across the globe, but is also an effort to stave off the disastrous impact the coronavirus could have on the economy.

Trump also announced the waiving of interest payments on student loans as universities close temporarily, and "relief" from tax deadlines for individuals and businesses impacted by the epidemic.

It also included boosting programs providing food for children, the elderly and to food banks.

It would bolster unemployment aid, and the "food stamps" programme that helps 34 million low-income people buy groceries.

The statement from the speaker comes amid intense talks and almost two dozen phone conversations over the past two days with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.
