Stimulus Check Update: State Initiated Stimulus Payments

Stimulus check payments are an example of the shifting system from the federal government to the state. Citizens used to receive financial aid from the federal government before but now are receiving stimulus check payments which is a state-funded relief initiated to fight the battle of covid 19 economically. 

Covid 19 already caused congress a lot of damage; meanwhile, the announcement of 80 million citizens remaining for vaccination shook the whole nation. In this crisis, this stimulus payment will work as a relief to the residents whose financial stability is undermined.
