( CBS DFW ) — Many Americans are wondering about a fourth stimulus check, even as the third round of economic relief continues to arrive. Around 159 million payments of up to $1,400 per person have been issued over the last month. Paper checks and EIP cards continue to arrive by mail. Plus-up payments, for those who didn’t receive what they’re eligible for, have also started going out. Altogether that’s most of the $422 billion allotted in President Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act. These relief payments are part of a larger effort to soften COVID’s economic impact on households and brace the economy while the pandemic recovery continues. The stimulus package also extends unemployment benefits, strengthens the child tax credit, and much more. The recent round of checks follows the $1,200 CARES Act payments at the pandemic’s outset and the $600 payments in early January.

Pass the CORE Act, please Re: “Three acts in Congress to preserve, grow and heal our public lands,” April 11 editorial Your recent editorial made some really important points about the Colorado Outdoor Recreation and Economy (CORE) Act. First was that the public lands package in 2019 passed over the CORE Act, despite the fact that each portion of the bill was a decade in the making, by residents from the specific regions. These are true community-driven proposals, evidenced by overwhelming support from local governments and affected stakeholders including ranchers, conservationists, private property and water rights holders, businesses, and many more. That’s why I, as a small business owner in Durango, also support the CORE Act, and why I extend my thanks to Sen. John Hickenlooper for joining Sen. Michael Bennet in sponsoring this legislation. People from all over the state visit my shop to find the gear they need to visit these very areas, adding to the outdoor recreation … [Read more...] about Letters: Pass the CORE Act, please (4/17/21)
