An Anchorage state senator wants to repay Alaskans for Permanent Fund dividends that were reduced for three years under the state’s formula.
Bill Wielechowski’s proposal to pay an estimated $3,740 to eligible Alaskans is among 43 bills and resolutions filed Monday, in advance of the upcoming legislature, slated to start Jan. 15.
“Whether it’s done in a stand-alone bill or done through the budget — and ideally this would be done in the budget,” Wielechowski said of SB13. “This is to make sure we keep it moving along.”
