Talks on U.S. COVID-19 aid bill continue, No. 2 House Democrat says

WASHINGTON, July 31 (Reuters) - Negotiations over another coronavirus relief bill continue, the No. 2 Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives said as a federal jobless benefit was set to expire on Friday with no sign of a deal between the White House and Democrats.

“We’re going to be negotiating every minute that is possible,” U.S. Representative Steny Hoyer, the House majority leader, told MSNBC in an interview. (Reporting by Susan Heavey Editing by Marguerita Choy)
