Senators Therese Terlaje and Jim Moylan introduced an amendment to Sen. Regine Lee's local stimulus bill that doubles the original amount.
If passed, private sector workers who made less than $40,000 in 2019 or 2020 will receive up to an $800 stimulus check. Joint filers will receive up to a $1,600 stimulus check.
Ms. Lee raised concern about the ultimate pricetag.
The Guam Legislature currently is debating Ms. Lee's Bill No. 340, which if passed into law will roll out a local stimulus package to help Guam's taxpayers in the private sector.
