WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A top official at the U.S. Federal Reserve said on Sunday the $2.3 trillion economic relief bill approved by Congress was appropriately sized and that a further relief effort may not be needed if support efforts are well executed.

“I felt like this one was well-sized for the situation,” St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank President James Bullard told CBS’ “Face the Nation” when asked if further legislation would be needed.
