Federal and state governments continue to work to counteract the effects of inflation on Americans even though various economic situations are raising the cost of living for most Americans. California is one of the states that is waging war. To lessen the impact of inflation, the state intends to give stimulus check to its citizens.
Governor Gavin Newsom approved a $308 billion state budget on June 30, 2022, which gives 23 million Californians stimulus check as direct tax refunds. This suggests that a stimulus package worth up to $1,050 might be provided to an estimated 23 million Californians to help offset the consequences of historically high inflation.
The $17 billion package, which includes the stimulus check, will be paid for from the state’s $97 billion surplus. The package includes respite from paying utility bills, emergency rental assistance, and the state’s gas sales tax.
