House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is laying out an outline Democrats deemed as priorities in the “Phase 4” coronavirus stimulus relief package, with a focus on infrastructure, specifically broadband access and water resources.
“The fourth bill would be about recovery. We have a list of issues that are immediate — that have a short fuse,” Pelosi told reporters in a conference call Monday afternoon. “There are infrastructure needs that our country has that directly relate to how we are proceeding with the coronavirus. And we would like to see in what comes next something that has always been nonpartisan, bipartisan, and that is an infrastructure piece that takes us into the future.”
“This isn’t about how fast we can do it,” she added. “It’s how fast we must do it.”
