Governor Tom Wolf urged the legislature to deliver $2,000 cheques to Pennsylvania families.
For Pennsylvanians living paycheck to paycheck, even a slight rise in expenses can imply difficult decisions like food or rent.
"I see hardship in Pennsylvania communities and want to discuss solutions. I want to give $2,000 cheques to Pennsylvanians in need." Wolf said
Wolf proposed the PA Opportunity Program, which would use $500 million from American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).
Payments would go to low-income Pennsylvania households.
The programme aims to help households still recuperating from the COVID-19 outbreak or managing the rising cost of life.
On Wednesday, Wolf encouraged the Republican-led Pennsylvania General Assembly to act.
The bill has been introduced in the General Assembly, said Gov. Wolf. "Let's pass this bill today, Republican leaders," he said.
