WKTV- Congressman Anthony Brindisi held his fourth telephone town hall Thursday evening.

Topics Discussed included Unemployment, Public School Concerns, COVID-19 testing, and Tax Relief.

A big topic concerned questions about when someone could get an Economic Impact Payment Check, otherwise known as a Stimulus Check.

More than 80 Million Payments have already been sent out. Kevin McKeon, a District Congressional Liason with the IRS, who was a part of the town hall said he's heard some people have gotten stimulus checks, while others have not.

McKeon explained why there might be a delay for those who didn't recieve a stimulus check yet.

"If we (the IRS) didn't have your bank info, it will go out by a paper check, and we send out five million a week. And, with that kind of a timeframe, it could take several weeks maybe even going into August, as far as when you might get your paper check." said McKeon.
