The lawmakers of the Democratic state are calling the taxpayers of California to offer them a stimulus check of $400 which will help them to pay for the increasing cost of gas. These stimulus checks will be given to the people of the United States who live in California for meeting their other basic expenses like medical bills, electrical bills, or majorly for the gas price which has increased suddenly due to the war between Russia and Ukraine.
How Will The Stimulus Check Of $400 Work For People?
The proposal is still in the budding phase and is debated and discussed by lawmakers. As per the policy, the people living in California will get a stimulus check of $400 after they pay their state income tax. This money is given to an individual and married couples will get double of it to tackle the rising cost of living in the country due to the pandemic and constant threat of war from Russia.
As per some sources, the final decision about the stimulus check will be taken by Gavin Newsom, the Governor, and the state legislature once they make the whole budget of the state. The budget will mostly come out in June this year, however, Cottie Petrie-Norris, a member of the Assembly stated that the stimulus check must be given out very soon.
The administration of Newsom is hoping to make a surplus of $45 billion from the budget which can be used to help the people of California. The exact amount of $400 was set as it is the sum mostly paid by citizens of California on gas in the state excise taxes in a year. In the views of James Gallagher, the leader of Republicans in Yuba City, people need this money as the costs of basic necessities are rising daily and this relief could spare the people some tension.
