Gov. Gavin Newsom and state legislators have announced an agreement on a $9.6 billion coronavirus relief plan.

It includes $600 payments to low-income taxpayers who earn $30,000 a year or less.

Also eligible: Undocumented workers and those who file their taxes with an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN).

The payments will be sent out after those who are eligible file their 2020 taxes.

State legislators are expected to vote on this package in the coming weeks.
