White House Suggests Possible Double Child Credit

Coronavirus relief law policy would be renewed and doubled in February.

White Houes Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Friday that President Biden’s administration is interested in doubling the child tax credits if the proposed social spending package passes early in the year. The coronavirus relief law passed in April of last year gave up to $300 in tax credits to families with a child under the age of 6. The law is set to expire in December, but the White House is looking into reinstating the policy in the upcoming year.

“The president wants to see this move forward. It’s a priority for him as soon as Congress returns,” the press secretary said aboard Air Force One. “If we get it done in January, we’ve talked to Treasury officials and others about doing double payments in February as an option.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and White House officials as they communicate with Congress.
  • For members of Congress as they interact with constituents on their Christmas recess.
  • For God’s purposes to be accomplished in the governing of the United States.
