$ 600 from Newsom: Californians can get additional financial aid
California Governor Gavin Newsom is urging the state to send additional payments of $ 600 to low-income residents in the state. Writes about it CNN.
The money the governor is proposing to add to $ 600 in federal payments approved by Congress in December 2020, which, according to the governor's office, will receive approximately 4 million Californians.
Unlike federal money, illegal immigrants will be eligible for California payments.
Newsom's proposal is part of a broader economic aid plan that includes an extension of the state's moratorium on evictions, which will expire on January 31. If it continues, renters facing financial hardship due to the pandemic will be protected from eviction as long as they pay at least 25% of their rent.
The Democratic governor's plan calls for $ 2,6 billion in federal money to stabilize both low-income tenants and small business owners.
Federal payments are currently being transferred to the bank accounts of the population. Many Democratic Party members argue that $ 600 checks aren't enough to help people struggling financially due to the pandemic.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said that one of the first bills he would like to pass as Senate Majority Leader would be the provision of checks for $ 2000.
