The US to kickstart Stimulus Check distribution

State governments in the United States are now responsible for their inhabitants’ welfare, after the federal government’s decision not to provide another stimulus check to citizens.

While the federal government stepped in during the pandemic’s early stages, it is now up to states to give further economic help to families countrywide.
