House Speaker Pelosi Reveals Over $3 Trillion Coronavirus Aid Package

WASHINGTON (AP) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi unveiled Tuesday a more than $3 trillion new coronavirus aid package.

The aid would provide nearly $1 trillion for states, cities and tribal governments to avert layoffs, plus another $200 billion in “hazard pay” for essential workers.

Additionally, it would offer $1,200 in direct cash aid to individuals, up to $6,000 per household. There would be also $75 billion more for virus testing.

A House vote is expected Friday, but the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Republican has cautioned his colleagues not to go so fast and there is no “urgency” to act immediately.
