Trump Signs Stimulus Package; What it Means To Indian Country

 

December 28, 2020

PALM BEACH, Fla. - President Donald Trump on Sunday evening signed the a $908 billion Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act into law, which sets in motion the release of the $908 billion emergency relief passed by Congress last Monday.

The key component for the average American is direct stimulus payments of $600 to individuals who earned up to $75,000 in 2019 or less than $150,000 per couple. So, a family of four will receive $2,400. Those individuals who earned more than $75,000 and up to $99,000 would have a reduced stimulus check. Individuals who made more than $99,000 are ineligible for the stimulus program.

Last Tuesday, Trump released a video via Twitter that said the $600 per individual was not enough. He said $600 per individulas was a "disgrace" and the stimulus payments per individual should have been $2,000. He left the White House to fly to his Florida home without signing the Act, which left speculation he would not sign it.
