Pelosi and Mnuchin discuss budget and economic aid package

The main stumbling block is protection from lawsuits of businesses that were negligent about the problem of coronavirus

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin on Monday discussed by phone a budget bill designed to prevent a government shutdown and a new round of economic aid to cope with the coronavirus pandemic.

House Representative Speaker Drew Hammill tweeted that Pelosi reiterated Democrats’ concerns about protecting businesses that were negligent about the coronavirus problem, resulting in the infection of customers and employees. Nancy Pelosi told Mnuchin that the remaining unresolved issues in the budget bill could be easily resolved. The phone call, according to Drew Hammill, lasted 22 minutes..

“Recognizing the need to come to a final agreement on both issues quickly and together this week, the House Speaker and the Treasury Secretary discussed the urgency of the committees to finalize their work,” said Hammill..
