In a letter to her district and to all of America.  The California Congresswoman and Chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus the Honorable Karen Bass issued this statement:  “This week, about 60 million Americans received a $1,200 bank deposit as mandated by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act that Congress passed at the end of last month.

People who received this first round of payments generally filed 2018 or 2019 taxes, and provided their banking information to the IRS for their refund. If you are one of those households, I hope that the additional funds will help you in this very stressful time.”

Furthermore, the congresswoman stated that as of Monday April 20th another 80 million households who haven’t received the payment are wondering where there payments are and when will they be arriving?
