The Federal Government of the United States has already sanctioned three stimulus checks to the eligible citizens of the country. In addition to this, many states have already come up with a new stimulus check idea and have also served the people with direct payments. Moreover, some states are still planning on distributing the residents of their area with a new stimulus check and the state of Delaware is the new one that has initiated this plan.
A New Stimulus Check For Delaware Residents Worth $300
The State of Delaware has come up with a new stimulus check which would offer the eligible residents $300 to tackle the issue of inflation. The eligibility criteria of the residents to get this check is the filing of 2020 tax returns. Some lawmakers from both the Democratic and Republican parties have given consensus this Thursday on a proposal where every citizen of Delaware will get a $300 stimulus check.
In the views of Valerie Longhurst, the Majority Leader of the House, the State got an opportunity to return the money of the citizens to them. She admitted that the taxpayers deserve such direct payments and this is the only way the hardships of the citizens can be eased off a bit.
The stated lawmakers are planning to execute the official legislation by April as the surplus of $1 billion of the State will be used to pay for such a relief check. This proposal will be confirmed in April with the return of the General Assembly meeting. Furthermore, this proposal has the support of John Carney, the Governor, and the members of both the parties i.e. Democrats and Republicans.
According to Carney, these stimulus checks must help the families of Delaware to pay for the rising gas price. As per data, approximately 600,000 citizens will get the check by the end of June and it will cost the State $186 million.
