Pelosi sets 48-hour deadline to approve stimulus deal before the election

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Sunday she and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin must reach an agreement within 48 hours if they want to pass a coronavirus stimulus relief bill before Election Day.

“그만큼 48 only relates to if we want to get it done before the election, which we do,” Pelosi said in an interview on ABC’s “이번 주.” “But we’re saying to them we have to freeze the design on some of these things. Are we going with it or not? And what is the language.
상원 다수당 지도자 Mitch McConnell 발표 on Saturday there would be votes on stimulus measures, including a stand-alone Paycheck Protection Program bill to help small businesses, on Tuesday and Wednesday. But Democrats, who are expected to block McConnell’s effort, have been pushing for a larger deal, banking on on-again, off-again talks that Pelosi has had with Mnuchin for months.
Pelosi’s office told CNN Sunday that the 48 hours refers to the end of the day on Tuesday and that they need answers to key outstanding questions by then or they won’t be able to get a bill passed before the election. Negotiations would still continue after Tuesday if a deal isn’t reached, but it wouldn’t get done in time before Election Day.
    The California Democrat also said during the interview with ABC the White House has watered down language Democrats have been pushing to create a national plan for Covid-19 testing and contact tracing. She also noted that the Trump administration had changed much of the language on testing and tracing after the two sides seemingly came to an agreement last week.
    They took out 55% of the language that we had there for testing and tracing,” Pelosi는 말했다, and noted that they areseeking clarityon the details of the language.
      Pelosi and Mnuchin spoke Saturday evening for more than an hour.
