$ 600.00 is a joke, but even $2,000 is not the answer, the correct answer is to open up this country, restaurants and all and let Americans take care of themselves, handouts are not the answer! Hurting the economy with shutdowns is absurd and increasing the national deficit is certainly NOT right!

$2,000 could potentially mean the difference from being homeless or not., but $600 will Not pay anyones rent or house payment.

$4,000.00 for every one that makes under 40,000.00. Give it to people that actually need it! I think these billionaires need to be capped and the rest given back.

I still like a income flat tax the same for every person. No deductions and no taxes back.

These corrupt career politicians need to think about the American people first. Why send billions of dollars overseas when it’s a stimulus to help the the American people?if you call it a covid relief bill for the American people and say it’s to help us but send money overseas it’sgoing back to them

The people that need it are hurting badly and $600 is a slap in the face. $2000 comes closer to covering anything significant.

$2,000 might actually make a difference in people's lives; $600 doesn't cut it at all.

For those that truly need it. Not for people that are still able to work and earn a living. And absolutely NOT for illegal immigrants EVER!!

Because even though the 600$ stimulus was approved I feel that the other amount would be easier and better cause for the businesses, and the American people.

I think we should give everyone $10,000. I am 78 I won't need to pay it back. lol. Most of the money borrowed is going to foreign countries. Young people that vote democrat have no idea that they are destroying their future.

inflation? There will be consequences to all this. I really hope those in need are able to use it well but it will still come at a cost.

No! what I would support is having businesses who are forced to close submit last years P&L to the government and get that money, they could pay their employee's who could pay their bills. Of course there is more to it but I do not have room to go in to it.

Beginning to look like the city wants to be a mini Portland. Not what Central Oregon is all about.

Piping the canals to conserve water is the logical next step. Where does Commissioner Adair think the wildlife got a drink before the canals were made over 100 years ago? I will admit reducing Junipers and reinvigorating our wild grasslands makes sense.

The canals were not put in as "water features" for people's backyards. Build your own water feature and pay for the water. This water is meant for agriculture.

Commission Adair, where do you think wildlife get water when irrigation water is off Oct-March? Please share your plan and funding strategy for removing 5 million juniper trees. What will happen to the wildlife that live in those trees. Your argument is weak.

Why do Bend residence have to accommodate Jefferson county. I'm sure someone up there can figure a way go pump the water they need out of Lake Billy Chinook

Wildlife has relied on these open canals for decades. There is no other option for critter water.
