Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) ended the House's session Wednesday within two minutes and did not indicate when there will be a vote on the coronavirus stimulus bill.

The House was set to approve the $2 trillion package and unanimous consent was expected after Senate leaders and the White House struck a deal Tuesday night.

Pelosi released a statement on Wednesday saying the bill had moved closer to helping the American worker but added that it is in the process of review.

"House Democrats will now review the final provisions and legislative text of the agreement to determine a course of action," Pelosi said.

Politico senior writer Jake Sherman wrote on Twitter that the House is not likely to vote on the bill on Wednesday as anticipated.

Sources also told Fox News reporter Chad Pergram that the House will not be meeting again for the rest of the day.
