House Speaker Pelosi says may look at guaranteed income, other aid

WASHINGTON, April 27 (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representative Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Monday U.S. lawmakers may need to think of different ways to put money in Americans’ pockets if coronavirus aid allotted so far does not do enough, and may look at a guaranteed income for people.

“Let’s see what works, what is operational and what needs attention,” Pelosi said in an interview with MSNBC. “Others have suggested a minimum income, a guaranteed income for people. Is that worthy of attention now? Perhaps so. Because there are many more people than just in small business and hired by small business ... that may need some assistance as well.” (Reporting by Doina Chiacu; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
