White House and Senate negotiators announced an agreement early Wednesday morning on a massive financial rescue package designed to curb the economic damage of the COVID-19 pandemic.There was no immediate word from aides to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. With the House in pro forma session and many lawmakers unlikely to travel back to Washington, Pelosi will likely need to clear the package by voice vote or unanimous consent.
