Californians could see an extra financial boost after Gov. Gavin Newsom unveiled a proposal to send new stimulus checks and renter assistance to residents on Monday.
The $100 billion comeback plan announced by Newsom, a Democrat, calls for a total of about $12 billion in direct payments to residents and around $5 billion in renter assistance.
The plan also includes $2 billion to help state residents pay overdue water and utility bills.
