Here’s a simple guide to what’s happening in the Legislature, where things stand, and why.

Q: What will the Permanent Fund Dividend be this year?

A: We don’t know yet, but we have some ballpark figures. On Friday, the House approved spending $1.02 billion on dividends. Last year, 615,590 Alaskans received dividends. Divide the first number by the second, and you get $1,663.

We don’t know how many people will receive dividends this year (the deadline for applications was 11:59 p.m. Saturday), so the exact number will almost certainly change.
