WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi will deliver a statement on the coronavirus economic relief bill currently under consideration in her chamber at 2 p.m. (1800 GMT), her office said.

She will speak shortly before President Donald Trump is scheduled to hold a press conference in the White House Rose Garden. Pelosi, a Democrat, has been negotiating with Republican Trump’s administration to swiftly pass a package aimed at limiting the economic damage to individuals and small businesses from the current coronavirus outbreak.
