Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to call the House in to vote on money for the Postal Service could pave the way for a narrow deal on a coronavirus aid package, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said Wednesday.
Meadows told reporters outside the White House that the chance for a bipartisan but narrow aid deal “is better than it’s ever been” following Pelosi’s decision to call up a bill providing $25 billion to the financially troubled Postal Service.
"That's the first indication we have that she'll do a skinny bill," Meadows said.
Lawmakers will vote on that measure on Saturday. Meadows said the two parties should work out a plan to add “four or five” stalled coronavirus aid provisions to that package.
