About this Deal

Congress hasn't approved a fourth stimulus check, so California may send its own round to most of the state.

The proposal, just one part of Governor Gavin Newsom's $100 billion "California Comeback Plan," has not yet become law. But Newsom hasn't wasted any time in selling his plan to millions of Californians.

Responding to a tweet saying Americans were wondering if more financial aid was coming, Newsom confidently said: "In California -- the answer is YES."

"$600 checks are coming to 2/3 of Californians. And if you have a kid, you can benefit from an additional $500," Newsom said on Twitter Tuesday.

How much money would Californians get in a stimulus check?
The proposed tax rebates would be up to $1,100. Individuals would get $600 and families with dependents would get an additional $500.

Who would get the checks?
Roughly 11 million Californians would see direct, one-time payments under the plan, which targets middle-class Californians. Newsom says that's 78% of all tax filers in the state.

Taxpayers making between $30,000 and $75,000 a year would get the $600 payment. Households making up to $75,000 with at least one child would get the extra $500.

The checks would be offered "regardless of immigration status," Newsom said Monday.
