$1,400 cheques to be mailed to New Yorkers in coming weeks, says Sen. Schumer
CA, 08 Mar 2021
Democratic Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer said Sunday that “help is on the way” for New Yorkers as $1,400 cheques will be mailed to most residents and businesses affected by the pandemic in the coming weeks.
This came one day following the passage of President Joe Biden's $1.9-trillion COVID-19 relief plan.
The final bill includes $400 billion in one-time payments of $1,400 to most Americans, $300 a week in extended jobless benefits for the 9.5 million people thrown out of work in the crisis, and $350 billion in aid to state and local governments that have seen the pandemic blow a hole in their budgets.
The Senate voted 50-49, with no Republicans supporting what would be one of the largest stimulus packages in U.S. history.
