SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California Gov. Gavin Newsom and legislative leaders have agreed on a $9.6 billion spending deal aimed at aiding some of those hit hardest by the pandemic.

The package announced Wednesday includes a new round of small business grants, $600 stimulus checks for low-income individuals and more housing assistance for farmworkers infected by the coronavirus.

Lawmakers plan to quickly take up the measure, with votes expected as early as Monday.

About 5.7 million one-time payments would go to those with incomes below $30,000.

It also includes those that the trio of Democratic leaders said were unfairly excluded from previous federal stimulus payments under the administration of Republican Donald Trump.
