Pelosi spokesman says relief talks moving 'closer'

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin moved "closer" to an agreement on the fourth coronavirus relief bill, a spokesman for the Democratic leader said on Wednesday following a phone call between the two officials.

"Differences continue to be narrowed on health priorities, including language providing a national strategic testing and contract tracing plan, but more work needs to be done to ensure that schools are the safest places in America for children to learn," spokesman Drew Hammill tweeted, asserting that the two are "better prepared to reach compromise on several priorities."

Earlier today, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows argued that Pelosi and Democrats only made "very small" concessions on the relief measures.
