Gov. Mike Dunleavy is proposing a staggered payment plan as a way to pay back reduced Permanent Fund dividend payouts from each of the last three years.
The plan on Wednesday morning was introduced in Senate Bill 23 during a Senate floor session.
It calls for the following payment schedule:
• $1,061 from 2016 to be paid this year to all who received a dividend three years ago and remain eligible this year.• $1,289 from 2017 to those who received a dividend two years ago and will be eligible in 2020.• $1,328 from 2018 to Alaskans who received a dividend last year and will be eligible in 2021.
