Treasury offers timetable on $600 stimulus payments for direct deposit, checks; Highland Park reserve officer pulled over by fake Michigan State Police trooper

DETROIT – A second, smaller round of stimulus checks are due to most Americans after President Trump signed off on a $900 billion coronavirus relief bill last weekend.

This round will be $600 — compared to $1,200 earlier this year. A bill passed by the House on Monday could increase the payments to $2,000, but it faces an uphill battle in the Senate. If it were to pass, it would be added on top of the $600 payment, as a separate payment. (You’d get another payment of $1,400).

Snow will develop this evening, and perhaps even become heavy for a couple of hours. We could easily pick up an inch or a little more. Once this band of snow passes through, precipitation will lighten up a bit, and then freezing rain will move in late at night.
