How Biden's 'American Rescue Plan' will impact Washingtonians

President Joe Biden signed the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief plan - the American Rescue Plan - in an effort to provide some aid to struggling families. 

In addition to the $1,400 stimulus checks going out to households right now, Washington state will roughly get $7 billion from the bill. 

More than $4 billion of that will go right to the state, $1.5 billion goes to the counties, and just over a billion dollars will go to cities, towns and other governments. 

King County Public Health plans to use some of the money from the Rescue Plan to create more pop-up vaccination sites and mobile units and to bring the vaccines to the community.  

The county plans to have a breakdown of how it will use the money from the Rescue Plan later this week.

Biden also announced with this initiative that he hopes to have everyone vaccinated by May.
