  • Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Mnuchin, Pelosi to Reconvene Talks on Covid Stimulus Relief Bill” – below is their description.

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are set to reconvene their conversations about COVID relief and other end-of-session items, including a $1.4 trillion catchall government funding bill, as the Trump administration comes to a close.

    Mnuchin told reporters as he arrived at a Senate Banking Committee hearing to assess earlier COVID rescue efforts that he and Pelosi are focused primarily on the unfinished appropriations bills.

    “I will be speaking to the speaker this afternoon. We’re going to talk about where we are on the appropriations issue. Keeping the government running, that is the first priority,” Mnuchin told reporters. “And I’m sure we’ll also be mentioning COVID Relief.”

    Pelosi and Mnuchin grappled over a relief bill for weeks before the election, discussing legislation of up to $2 trillion, but Senate GOP conservatives opposed their efforts and Pelosi refused to yield on key points.

    Mnuchin is appearing before the Senate Banking Committee with Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell who testified that the pace of recovery is moderating. The panel oversees the $2 trillion aid package approved by Congress in March.
