Pennsylvania residents may be lucky enough to see a stimulus payment worth $2,000 if a proposal passes.
Governor Tom Wolf proposed a plan worth $1.7 billion dollars in February.
The payment is a way to help residents struggling amid inflation and rising costs in groceries, bills, and gas.
The governor stated residents shouldn’t be forced to choose between paying their bills or buying food for their family.
Support for the stimulus package
Two bills were introduced that support the proposal.
These were put forth by Senate and House Democrats.
The bills are Senate Bill 1204 and House Bill 2531.
Eligibility for the stimulus payment
Residents earning $80,000 or less could see the $2,000 payments.
The goal is to help families recover who suffered financially from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The bill has not been passed so whether residents will actually see a stimulus payment is still up in the air.
