LIVE VIDEO: Pelosi Speaks On Coronavirus Reponse

ABC News reports:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will deliver a statement Friday afternoon about a legislative package to respond to the spread of the coronavirus, with measures including free testing, paid emergency sick leave, and increasing funds for food security programs and Medicaid.

The House did not vote on the bill Thursday, but may do so on Friday, after extensive negotiations between Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

“This evening, after much deliberation, we are near to a bipartisan agreement subject to an exchange of final legislative text to pass the Families First Coronavirus Response Act,” Pelosi said in a letter to colleagues Thursday evening.
