California governor proposes $600 stimulus for low-income residents

California Governor Gavin Newsom on Wednesday proposed giving $600 in stimulus cash support to low-income residents of his state and extending an eviction moratorium to provide relief to people struggling on account of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The cash support, which the governor included in a 2021-2022 state budget proposal, would go to Californians who qualify for a California Earned Income Tax Credit, with annual incomes of $30,000 or less, according to a statement from the governor's office.
