Pelosi: Working out stopgap funding bill

Speaker of the United States House Nancy Pelosi (pictured) said on Friday that the lawmakers are working on the details for stopgap spending bill needed to avert a partial government shutdown on October 1.

She expressed hope that the legislation will be done by today and be brought to the Congress floor next week.

Commenting on the coronavirus stimulus, Pelosi stated the Democrats wouldn't go back down from their demands for a $2.2 trillion package, noting that "something is not necessarily better than nothing" on aid.
