Top Democrats said Sunday they’re not yet ready to sign off on the major coronavirus stimulus package — and will be preparing their own legislation — as Congress attempts to ready the bill for passage as soon as Monday.

Just prior to an 11 a.m. meeting between the top Republican and Democratic congressional leaders, as well as Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told reporters “from my standpoint, we are apart.”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told reporters ahead of the meeting that “we need a bill that puts workers first, not corporations” and declined to say whether he supports the current bill.

Leaving Sunday’s meeting, Pelosi said she will be introducing her own legislative package “but we are still talking” with Republican leaders. At this point, however, she said there is no bipartisan deal.

The meeting comes hours before a critical 3 p.m. procedural vote on the Phase III bill, of which the text has not yet been released. Congressional leaders are hopeful of hammering out the details Sunday.
