Mnuchin says U.S. coronavirus aid bill cost should be significant, not huge

WASHINGTON, March 15 (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Sunday the cost of the stimulus bill responding to the coronavirus crisis will likely be "significant but not huge."

Mnuchin told "Fox News Sunday" he expected to have a better idea of the legislation's price tag this week. He said it was necessary to get relief for the economy and that the government is focused on helping businesses that need liquidity.
