California Governor Gavin Newsom announces $100 billion for more stimulus checks in the state

Governor Gavin Newsom and other state leaders announced a $100 billion economic relief plan that will provide Californians with a one-time stimulus check.

This stimulus check expands to include families who earn up to $75,000. This comes at a very peculiar time as the recall petition for Newsom recently hit the number of signatures required. Governor Newsom will be sending out a stimulus check of $600 to 2 out of 3 Californians. When asked how to spend it, Governor Newsom stated, “We believe people are better suited than we are to make determinations for themselves on how best to use these dollars.” Lawmakers will need to sign off on the stimulus plan, but leaders of the budget committee supported the announcement which signals that it will pass.

Governor Newsom has denied the allegations that the timing of the stimulus plan correlates with the recall effort that is being pushed by Republicans. “To the extent that people rightfully and understandably were stressed and anxious over the last year because of this pandemic-induced recession and all the struggle, I completely respect and understand why some may have filled out a petition. But at the end of the day, this is what it is, a Republican-backed recall,” Newsom said.
