IV reacts to “Golden State Stimulus”

EL CENTRO, Calif. (KYMA,KECY) - California Gov. Gavin Newsom has proposed a new stimulus plan that would provide a $600 rapid cash support directly to roughly four million low-income Californians.

The Golden State Stimulus would include undocumented families as well.

About 24 percent of the Imperial County population lives below the poverty line. These are residents who have annual incomes of $30,000 or less.

Council Member Raul Ureña says he is in absolute agreement with the stimulus. However, he does feel the cap should've been 40-50k yearly.

"I am happy that unlike other states, he is thinking about the undocumented individuals that not only work to grow and harvest our food but are also the ones who often cook it too," said Ureña.

Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia who represents Imperial County in the state capitol says he is happy that Governor Newson is helping vulnerable families.

 "This coming week, I will be returning to Sacramento and focusing all my energy to ensure that our district receives our fair share of these investments,”said Assemblymember Garcia.
