Pelosi: ‘Just calm down,’ we’ll secure ‘significant’ money for states, localities

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday said people clamoring for additional direct funding for states in federal rescue legislation should “just calm down” and vowed that Democrats will secure the money in later rounds of legislating in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

“Just calm down,” Mrs. Pelosi, California Democrat, said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “We will have state and local, and we will have it in a very significant way.”

The speaker’s comment came after a clip of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo ran in which the governor said he would have insisted that funding for states be included in the legislation.
