Stimulus Check demands have been growing for a significant amount of time. The local citizens have pushed hard for yet another financial assistance. The previously provided stimulus payments aided the citizens. The checks were announced at the time of acute economic distress. The government structured three checks at the time of the pandemic. The payments rolled out were $1200, $600 & $1400. This money did provide initial assistance. However, it failed to sustain the household in the long run. People in America are suffering from unemployment.
Several petitions have also been launched. The petition by Stephanie Bonin has gained significant momentum. The bill proposes a recurring payment of $2000 per month. But the federal government does not seem to entertain the claims. Some states in America have announced stimulus check for their residents. Michigan, California, Florida, New York, Colorado, New Mexico, Maryland, Texas, etc have offered assistance to the citizens.
Taking a leaf out of these states, Maine has also sanctioned a fresh set of stimulus payments for the eligible residents of their state. The announcement came recently from the Governor of the state, Janet Mill. Mill proposed the bill months ago, after which, it has been finally approved, much to the joy of the citizen. Let us learn more about the story in detail below.
