Eligible Pennsylvania Residents Can Receive $2,000 Payment | Alissa Rose
As we all know, prices are going up in Pennsylvania as gasoline costs $4,202 a gallon, diesel costs $5,358 a gallon, and grocery store prices go up. So, due to the cost of living crisis, millions of Americans in Pennsylvania could receive a $2,000 stimulus check.
Pennsylvania lawmakers have come up with a new plan that would send payments directly to state citizens who earn less than $80,000 a year.
Governor Wolf has suggested using $500 million in US bailout funding, which the Biden administration passed in March 2021, to provide direct payments to households.
On Wednesday, Governor Wolf said “the rising cost of everything from gas, housing and grocery prices has forced many families to earn a living. Pennsylvanians deserve to be supported and to succeed.”
Governor Wolf also believes that by making direct payments to Pennsylvania citizens, they will be able to spend the money on the things that matter most to their family members. Additionally, he expects the money to go in part to local businesses that are still hurting.
The governor has proposed a $1.7 billion proposal that includes $225 million for small business relief, $204 million for property tax relief, $325 million for the healthcare system of Pennsylvania and $450 million for community conservation, preservation and regeneration.
Governor Wolf asked Republican leaders to “get on board and get a bill for this program on his desk quickly.”
