Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi delivered remarks on the Floor of the House of Representatives in support of S.Con.Res. 5, Senate-passed Budget Resolution, A Key Step in Enacting the Urgently-Needed Biden COVID Relief Package. Below are the Speaker’s remarks:
Speaker Pelosi. I thank Mr. Morelle, the gentleman from New York, a distinguished member of the Rules Committee among other committees of the House for bringing this important rule to the Floor.
Madam Speaker, we just left a meeting with President Biden, where we had a discussion about how this legislation meets the needs of the American people. As our colleagues may be aware, early this morning, before 6:00 a.m., the Senate passed a budget bill which is identical in instruction to the bill that we sent there. We had a debate on that bill on Wednesday. It passed with a strong vote in the House and then went to the Senate. It will – it comes back to us now, and we’re addressing it. See more here folks thanks.
