A group of lawmakers is starting to call for the fourth round of stimulus checks, just as the final payments from the third round are starting to hit mailboxes.
On March 30th, a few U.S. Senators wrote a letter asking President Biden to consider both recurring direct payments as well as automatic unemployment insurance extensions as part of his Build Back Better economic plan.
Also known as the American Jobs Plan, the bill doesn’t yet mention a fourth stimulus check similar to the ones that millions have received throughout the pandemic. Rather, it’s a long-term initiative to rescue, recover and rebuild the country’s financial standing.
In short, President Biden has not indicated publicly that he supports a fourth stimulus payment. Instead, he is focused on passing the Build Back Better plan that aims to improve transportation infrastructure and affordable housing, among other things.
