WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives could vote on an emergency bill aimed at providing funding for the country’s coronavirus response as soon as next week, a congressional source said on Friday.

Negotiators were looking at approving between $6 to $8 billion in funding for the response, the source said, significantly higher than the $2.5 billion the White House had requested.
