Lawmakers spent a record amount of time at the capitol this year trying to agree on a budget.
Two members of Governor Mike Dunleavy’s cabinet who are trustees — Revenue Commissioner Lucinda Mahoney and Natural Resources Commissioner Corri Feige — voted against the corporation’s budget proposal.
Lawmakers are discussing two bills: One that sets the amount of this year’s permanent fund dividend payout and another bill to set future PFDs.
