Keller @ Large: House Speaker DeLeo 'Very Concerned' With Lack Of Federal Coronavirus Aid

BOSTON (CBS) – Massachusetts House Speaker Robert DeLeo said he is "very concerned" with the lack of a new federal coronavirus aid package and what it could mean for the state's budget deficit.

DeLeo joined WBZ-TV political analyst Jon Keller for Sunday's Keller @ Large.

The House speaker said that without federal aid, the state could be facing a $4-6 billion budget shortfall.

"Without the assistance from Washington, which we are very much depending upon, which hasn't been forthcoming so far, we're very concerned," said DeLeo.
