Stimulus checks worth up to $250 approved by Massachusetts Senate

The Massachusetts Senate passed a bill that would give residents one-time $250 stimulus checks, along with tax relief for low-income residents and other vulnerable groups.

The $250 rebates are the highlight of a $4.6 billion economic aid bill recently passed in the Senate, according to Mass Live. It will have to be approved by the Massachusetts House of Representatives before being sent to Gov. Charlie Baker for approval.
