CBS News (5/12, Segers) reports House Speaker Pelosi “unveiled Democrats’ proposal for the next phase of coronavirus relief legislation on Tuesday, releasing a massive legislative package that Democrats hope to bring to a vote as early as Friday.” The Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions (HEROES) Act would, among other things, “provide relief for essential workers, such as aviation, rail and Amtrak workers.” Pelosi said the measure’s priorities were “opening our economy safely and soon, honoring our heroes, and then putting much needed money in the pockets of Americans.”
