Schumer, WH reiterate commitment to passing COVID relief

United States Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (pictured) reiterated on Thursday that the Democratic party is "working to quickly pass the American Rescue Plan and deliver urgent, bold COVID relief to Americans across the country."

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki conveyed a similar message during a press conference that took place earlier today, saying that US President Joe Biden regularly communicates with both Democrats and the Republicans, as passing the aid package is "his top priority."

Earlier this week, Schumer underlined that Congress will pass the bill before the unemployment benefits in the United States expire on March 14.
