Millions could receive relief checks between $1,000 

and $2,000 under the $17.6 billion fund

Up to 2.5 million households may receive relief checks soon, 

and seniors could see lower taxes as a result of a new proposal.

As part of his two-year spending and tax plan,

A total of $16 billion is expected to be spent on these measures.

In response to the economic pressures on families, Mr. Walz said that

Whether it's reducing the cost of child care or 

putting money back into people's pockets, he said.
