PETITION FROM RESTAURANT OWNER CALLS FOR MORE STIMULUS
A petition calling for more Covid relief money was started last year by restaurant owner Stephanie Bonin.
Bonin, of Denver, wrote: “I’m calling on Congress to support families with a $2,000 payment for adults and a $1,000 payment for kids immediately, and continuing regular checks for the duration of the crisis.”
In total, Americans have received three stimulus checks since 2020.
So far, the federal government has paid $3,200 to each eligible adult, with payments of $1,200 under former President Trump’s Cares Act, $600 in a separate Trump relief measure, and $1,400 under Biden’s plan.
