It's Time For "Beat The Clock!"

$1,100: More Than The $992 We Got Last Year 




With only two hours left in the Alaska State Legislature's special session, the Alaska Senate finally voted by 12 to 7 to approve a $1,100 Permanent Fund dividend this year. They came up with the $1,100 they had been talking about for a while. 

It wasn't enough, said Governor Mike Dunleavy, who approved it anyway. He said he wanted to veto it because he thought it was too little. But, he said, he said he would call the legislature back into session again in two weeks, on October 1st, "to get the rest of this year's PFD and to solve the state's financial problems with a complete fiscal plan."

Earlier this year a $525 dividend was passed by the House and Senate. Dunleavy vetoed it.
