Kaine says negotiations advancing on next round of COVID relief
ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - US Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) says negotations on the next round of COVID-19 relief are moving forward.
Speaking with reporters during a teleconference Wednesday afternoon, Kaine said it’s too early to be 100 percent sure.
But he said congressional leaders are getting closer to a deal.
“I do believe in the last couple of days, we’ve seen ... the icebergs are starting to move apart and we’re starting to see a path through to a deal,” Kaine told reporters. “The American public desperately needs one.”
Kaine said it now appears that leaders could agree on a framework by the end of this week, work out the details over the weekend and vote next week.
