Shortly after the $1.9 trillion piece of legislation was signed into law, President Biden’s Press Secretary said $1,400 direct deposits could be seen as soon as this weekend.
“People can expect to start seeing direct deposits hit their bank accounts as early as this weekend,” Whitehouse Press Secretary Jen Psaki said. ”Payments to eligible Americans will continue throughout the course of the next several weeks.”
The large bill passed through Congress with no Republican lawmakers’ support.
Prior to signing the legislation, President Joe Biden said the legislation is meant to help rebuild “the backbone of this country.”
“And giving people in this nation, working people, middle class folks, the people who built this country, a fighting chance,” he said.
