Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen met with small business owners on Thursday. Senate Republicans criticized moves by Democrats to fast-track President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion Covid-19 relief plan without their backing.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the chamber will meet next week to take the first step toward proceeding with a Democrat-only Covid-19 relief bill. Republicans have voiced support for vaccine funding, but remain opposed to other elements of Biden’s proposal.
