Pelosi negotiating with White House on amount of possible coronavirus aid -spokesman

WASHINGTON, Oct 9 (Reuters) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin continued negotiating on a coronavirus relief package, and how much it might cost, on Friday afternoon, speaking for around 30 minutes about a White House proposal that addressed some Democratic lawmakers’ concerns, according to Pelosi’s spokesman.

“Of special concern, is the absence of an agreement on a strategic plan to crush the virus,” wrote spokesman Drew Hammill in a tweet. “For this and other provisions, we are still awaiting language from the Administration as negotiations on the overall funding amount continue.” (Reporting by Lisa Lambert and Timothy Ahmann Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
