WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A fifth coronavirus -response bill will soon be readied, U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Friday, as she warned Republicans that it must include new aid to state and local governments.

"There will not be a bill" without such aid, Pelosi said during a press conference. While she did not assign a specific cost for this next bill she said it will be "expensive."
