Pelosi rattled off priorities like money to build new community health centers, resources for broadband in rural areas and smaller towns, clean water infrastructure, and then money for roads, bridges, and mass transit programs.
The President has talked a lot about infrastructure, but never really taken the next step to negotiate a plan with Democrats, who now see a giant opportunity to move forward.
"For once, I agree with him on a step he wants to take," said Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR), the Chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.
The broader questions looming over the nation about the Coronavirus also apply to the Congress - as while the House is due back after Easter, it's not clear what the health situation will be nationwide at that point, and whether lawmakers will return to legislate.
"I think we come back April 20, God willing, and Coronavirus willing," the Speaker said.
