Payments to those who submitted paper applications or requested paper checks are set to go out about two weeks later, starting the week of Oct. 3.
It remains uncertain whether the Alaska Legislature will approve $5,500 payments to Alaskans this fall.
The budget proposed by the Finance Committee would have put away $1.2 billion in state savings accounts. But the plan that emerged from the Senate would take almost as much from savings, according to committee co-chair Sen. Bert Stedman.
The amount is roughly one-third of the additional $3.6 billion the Department of Revenue forecast the state will receive in its spring revenue update on Tuesday.
The budget proposal unveiled on Friday by the House Finance Committee would spend over $4 billion in state funding to run state government. That’s $148 million more than Dunleavy proposed.
Dunleavy wants the state to issue $325 million in bonds to pay for construction on ports, airports, fire halls and other projects.
Nonpartisan budget analysts say that without the federal relief, Dunleavy’s proposed budget would have a $350 million deficit.
