Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has proposed direct stimulus check payments of up to $2,000 to state residents earning less than $80,000.

According to a press release from Gov. Wolf’s office, “the cost of everything from gasoline to food is increasing, which can result in unpleasant choices for Pennsylvanians living paycheck to paycheck.”

 

Stimulus Check

 

“Pennsylvanians deserve assistance and a chance at success. On the other hand, my Republican colleagues have over $2 billion in support that will have to be returned to the federal government if no plan is approved.

Gov. Wolf’s proposal would use $500 million of the stimulus funds to provide free money to the residents of the state. The state is rumored to have over $2 billion in federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds. At the moment, no funds have been committed.

It is included in the governor’s $1.7 billion budget proposal, which includes $225 million in small-business assistance. Additionally, $204 million in direct property tax relief will be provided, along with $325 million for the state’s healthcare system and $450 million for community conservation, preservation, and revitalization.

 

Other States’ Stimulus Checks Have Been Updated

This comes at a time when other states in the United States are debating whether to enact a similar stimulus check. Gas prices are at an all-time high in California right now. As a result, it’s unsurprising that it’s considering offering free money to citizens in the form of gas rebates.

Additionally, several states are conducting basic income experiments. Which are distinct from other forms of stimulus in that they are essentially free money delivered over an extended period of time.
