( CBS Detroit ) — A third stimulus check may be just weeks away. The $1,400 direct payment is an important part of the American Rescue Plan, President Biden’s $1.9 trillion economic relief package designed to help millions of Americans dealing with the economic fallout from COVID. It has support from both Democrats and Republicans and looks destined to end up in the bill’s final version. The package also includes higher unemployment benefits, an improved child tax credit, a $15 minimum wage, and more. While a third check seems destined for bank accounts, the specific timeline isn’t clear yet. When Could My Stimulus Check Arrive? The administration remains focused on signing the American Rescue Plan into law by March 14 . That is the day when the current $300 federal unemployment benefit bonus expires.

When U.S. Congressman Steve Scalise was busy earning political credentials as a state representative, he introduced a novel concept. Instead of trying to squeeze more money out of existing taxpayers by raising tax rates, why not try to attract new taxpayers? Some refer to this as “growing the pie” instead of cutting the existing pie into smaller pieces. Hence, Act No. 1 of the First Extraordinary Session, 2002 (House Bill No. 17) by Scalise and others, including the current governor’s Commissioner of Administration Jay Dardenne and the new White House Big Shot Cedric Richmond, became the Louisiana Motion Picture Incentive Act. Louisiana grew a major new industry with Scalise’s film tax credits, creating more than 10,000 new jobs here that never existed before 2002.
