Here’s your daily stimulus check, your second stimulus check, your third stimulus check, your fourth stimulus check, executive actions, executive orders, and stimulus package update for Sunday, April 25th, 2021.
Sen. Joe Manchin said Friday that Congress should focus on “conventional” infrastructure and floated breaking up President Biden’s sweeping plan.
Manchin said the administration and Congress should take Biden’s plan “step by step” and focus first on areas that could get bipartisan support like water, roads, bridges, and the internet.
Manchin, the most conservative member of the Senate Democratic caucus, is a key vote in the 50–50 Senate.
Manchin said, “What we think the greatest need we have now, that can be done in a bipartisan way, is conventional infrastructure whether it’s the water, sewer, roads, bridges, Internet — things that we know need to be repaired, be fixed.”
So instead of one massive proposal, he is insinuating working on these issues one at a time so that we can reach an agreement on both sides.
Meanwhile, A one-time stimulus payment of up to $1,200 is headed for all qualifying Californians, but only after their 2020 tax returns have been filed.
The Golden State Stimulus payment is aimed at supporting low-income Californians and helping those who have suffered a hardship.
These payments will not be scheduled until each 2020 tax return is processed.
To qualify, Californians must be living in the state for more than half the year, and be a resident on the date payment issued, be ineligible to be claimed as a dependent, have filed their 2020 taxes, and qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit or make less than $75,000.
The Golden State Stimulus is a one-time benefit, so to receive it, residents must file their 2020 tax returns by Oct. 15, 2021.
Those who qualify will receive either a $600 payment or $1,200 for joint filers.
And finally, Biden’s infrastructure bill is the next likely place for Congress to provide more funding.
