Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi delayed the passage of the Senate’s coronavirus relief package on Wednesday, as the House was in session for nearly three minutes and then adjourned until Thursday.

“House Democrats will now review the final provisions and legislative text of the agreement to determine a course of action,” Pelosi said about the nearly $2 trillion emergency relief deal which will be voted on Wednesday afternoon in the Senate after a long night of negotiations. Meaning, the House will not be able to vote on the package for another day. Pelosi also said there is “no way” to pass the bill through the House on Wednesday.

The article goes on to state the following:

Amid all of the negotiations, Pelosi on Monday introduced a massive coronavirus bill with a number of provisions completely unrelated to the crisis.

The Daily Caller reported that the House is not expected to be back in session until 11 am on Thursday.

Fox News reporter Chad Pergram tweeted, “Pelosi doesn’t commit to Senate coronavirus bill: “House Democrats will now review the final provisions and legislative text of the agreement to determine a course of action.””

Pelosi expressed some optimism about the Senate bill, saying, “This bipartisan legislation takes us a long way down the road in meeting the needs of the American people.”

“While the compromise does not go as far as our Take Responsibility for Workers and Families Act, thanks to the unity and insistence of Senate and House Democrats, the bill has moved a great deal closer to America’s workers,” Pelosi reportedly added.

The House reportedly gaveled in and then out in about three minutes, and Pelosi declared she’s reviewing the Senate bill.

“We’re reviewing it now. We have a staff and our chairman reviewing the bill. We’re optimistic but we’ll see..We’ll see the bill and see the when Senate votes. So there’s no decision about timing until we see the bill,” Pelosi said, according to Pergram.
