The Alaska Senate fell one vote short of reviving a bill that would pay a $3,000 dividend from the state’s oil-wealth fund Monday.

A 10-10 vote to rescind last week’s action kills Senate Bill 1002 with four days remaining in the current 30-day special session.

“It’s unlikely that we’re going to have a dividend concluded by Friday,” said Senate Finance Co-Chair Bert Stedman. “Very, very, very, very unlikely.”
