WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, speaking to reporters on Monday after a meeting with Senate Republicans, said he was seeking a “big number” for an additional stimulus package intended to prop up the economy amid the coronavirus outbreak, but he did not elaborate.
One Senate Republican, Marco Rubio, told reporters that Mnuchin had asked Republicans to move on an additional measure targeting airlines and small businesses this week.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he aimed to win Senate passage of a coronavirus response bill that has already passed in the House of Representatives.
