Explain This: Who Will Get a $1,400 Stimulus Check?

The House passed President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus bill, the last step before it goes to his desk to be signed into law.

The legislation includes a wave of new spending, an extension of jobless benefits, another round of direct household payments, money for state and local governments and an expansion of vaccinations and virus-testing programs, including a national vaccine distribution program for all residents regardless of immigration status. It also includes a massive, one-year expansion to the child tax credit program aimed at curbing child poverty, a change Democrats are already seeking to make permanent.
