Dunleavy: “I Will Not Veto This Incomplete Dividend”

first_imgDunleavy said he considered this a ‘partial PFD payment’ and that the legislature understands their jobs are not finished and they must fix this “as soon as possible”. Dunleavy: “While there are some that support the full statutory formula, unfortunately some do not. In this years budget the Legislature sent me a $1,600 appropriation for the PFD, again not following the statutory formula.”  Dunleavy: “The legislature has once again denied the people of Alaska, the full statutory PFD. Many people have asked me to veto this incomplete $1,6000 dividend, while others have asked me accept this partial dividend. To continue our fight for a full PFD, and while this decision was not easy, I have decided I will not veto this incomplete dividend.”  “Finally, now that the budget has been addressed, the full PFD will be the focus in this next special session, the sole focus. I will not let up until the remaining funds are appropriated for the full statutory PFD. I know Alaskans understand this decision and I appreciate all of your input.” Dunleavy campaigned on a Permanent Fund dividend for residents paid in line with a longstanding calculation that has not been followed since 2016 as the state has grappled with a budget deficit. Such a dividend would equate to checks of about $3,000 this year. Lawmakers instead asked Dunleavy to consider dividends of about $1,600 this year. Last year’s capped payout amounted to $1,600 checks.
