WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House said on Friday that it could make double monthly child tax credit payments in February, if Democrats’ spending plan to extend them doesn’t pass Congress before year-end.

“We’ve talked to Treasury and others about doing double payments in February. The president sees this as a priority as soon as Congress returns,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said.

The U.S. Treasury paid the last monthly child tax credit payment, $16 billion in total, on Wednesday.
