California's latest round of Golden State Stimulus checks will soon bring a little more green for people who qualify.



Gov. Gavin Newsom's office estimates that nearly two-thirds of Californians are eligible for a check under the state's pandemic recovery fund.

"For most Californians who qualify, you do not need to do anything to receive the stimulus payment other than file your 2020 tax return," according to a statement on the Tax Board's website.
