Will there be a 4th stimulus check? Here’s the latest update on another payment.

President Joe Biden and congressional Democrats fulfilled a campaign promise by including $1,400 checks in their $1.9 trillion coronavirus stimulus law.

So will there be a fourth wave of stimulus checks?

Biden was urged to support it last month by 21 Senate Democrats, including U.S. Sen. Cory Booker. They want continue automatically until the economy recovers,

“This crisis is far from over, and families deserve certainty that they can put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads,” the senators wrote. “Families should not be at the mercy of constantly-shifting legislative timelines and ad hoc solutions.”

But the president did not propose another round of checks in either of his next two spending plans, one for infrastructure and one for education and child care. So nothing’s on the table right now.
