Colorado Governor Jared Polis issued an executive order authorizing $168 million in stimulus funds. “The economic consequences of COVID-19 are enormous, and they threaten the economic stability of countless Coloradans and local companies,” Polis stated in the executive order.
“The contamination danger posed by COVID-19 caused the closure of several enterprises.” Employers and employees in nearly every area of the economy have taken a blow. While there are signs that our efforts to “flatten the curve” are bearing fruit, viral spread continues to endanger Coloradans’ way of life and livelihoods.”
How the Stimulus Checks Are Funded
Colorado, interestingly, linked the one-time stimulus payout to unemployment insurance. According to Polis, many Coloradans have not gotten federal unemployment benefits since early September.
As a result, the polis’ executive order mandates that stimulus cheques be sent from the state’s unemployment insurance system to qualifying persons experiencing financial hardship due to Covid-19. Further, the executive order requires that all stimulus cheques be distributed by December 4, 2020.
Will There Be a Stimulus Deal?
There will be no stimulus package in Congress before the election. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin disagreed on a prospective stimulus package that included second stimulus cheques, federal unemployment compensation, and state and local funding.
In principle, there had been an agreement on double stimulus checks of up to $1,200 for each person, $2,400 for each married couple or joint filer, and $500 for each qualified dependent.
However, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), running for re-election, adjourned the Senate until November 9. Will additional states intervene to give economic aid if there is no stimulus package shortly? Colorado is one example of a governor using an executive order to distribute stimulus funds.
Even though many states have suffered economic hardship due to Covid-19 and may not have adequate financial resources, may additional states issue stimulus payments from current sources? These stimulus payments did not appear to necessitate any new legislation, raising the issue of whether other governors will follow suit.
However, the concept of CEOs giving stimulus cheques is not restricted to the state level. President Donald Trump proposed using Covid relief monies to pay out the second round of stimulus cheques.
