More than a month ago, California Governor Gavin Newsom publicly stated that he would seek to push for the approval of a stimulus check for all qualifying citizens in his state. Today these supports will be a reality and will be able to benefit thousands of families who continue to battle with economic ravages, such as rising inflation in primary products, which has left the pandemic in more than 15 months since the financial strike occurred throughout the country, but mainly in California.
California legislatures approved Governor Gavin Newsom’s plan to send additional $ 600 stimulus checks to residents across the state as soon as possible. The president’s proposal was made, for the first time, in May, with the Golden State Stimulus II, with the aim of expanding the first round of payments that were made during the month of April. In that first round, people with incomes of $ 30,000 or less received payments.
Unlike the previous round, according to the official proposal, taxpayers who earn up to $ 75,000 annually and did not receive payments corresponding to the first round will receive $ 600 in support. Additionally, it was reported that families with dependents would receive an additional $ 500 in direct payments. Another benefit of this round has to do with the authorization to give another $ 500 in direct payments to undocumented families.
In order for the law to take effect, it must be signed by the governor. According to the legislators, the document is already in the office of the state president to be signed to give the green light to the distribution. This is expected to occur no later than next week, but a specific date has not been defined.
On Monday night of this week, California legislators approved the budget in order to issue this stimulus check. Added to this, it also extended the eviction moratorium and a new plan for the management of hazardous waste. Once the governor signs the bill, the corresponding government agencies will provide detailed information on how and when payments will be made to those who are beneficiaries. During the first rounds of payments, the state informed Californians that they had to wait between one and two weeks for direct deposits to their accounts and four to six weeks for physical checks to arrive at their homes. It is recommended that those who believe that they are candidates to receive the check and have doubts about it should go to the corresponding government authorities to have a clear idea of what steps to follow to ensure that the payment reaches the applicant’s hands.
