Dunleavy calls for state budget, while senators discuss separate PFD bill

Gov. Mike Dunleavy called on lawmakers on Wednesday to send the state budget to his desk.

He also wants permanent fund dividends to be calculated based on the formula set in state law, which would make them roughly $3,000.

“The clock is ticking,” Dunleavy told reporters. “Alaskans are waiting for a budget. And Alaskans are waiting for a decision that hopefully will follow the calculations that we’ve talked about for the PFD. I’m not sure what another week — or two or three weeks — is going to do to change that.”

Wednesday was the 15th day of the special session, which can last up to 30 days. Neither the Senate nor the House of Representatives have work scheduled for the rest of this week.
