WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday called for a summit involving the Bush administration and bipartisan congressional leaders to work on a range of economic problems.

Noting the recent successful collaboration on an economic stimulus measure, Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, said: "I am now calling on the president to once again join with us in a bipartisan...summit on the economy so that we can address the concerns, kitchen table concerns, of America's working families."

Pelosi made her remarks at a news conference centering on the current home mortgage crisis and consumers' concerns about their jobs and food and energy costs.
