Stimulus update 2022: Exact date new direct $3,200 one-time check payment will be sent out revealed – Washington Examiner

Alaska residents are poised to receive the first batch of a massive $3,200 payout next month.
The checks are slated to be issued to residents in the form of direct payments starting on Sept. 20, according to Alaska’s Department of Revenue. The checks are the result of a budget the Alaska Legislature approved earlier this year.

Residents opting for paper checks will receive those in early October.
Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy (R-AK) backed the new round of stimulus earlier this year as part of the state’s budget in June. The budget was one of the largest in the state’s history, Alaska Public Media reported.
“This budget is more than a spending plan; it’s a blueprint for Alaska’s future. Budgets should reflect the values and ambitions of the people they are designed for, and I believe this legislation accomplishes that,” Alaska’s governor said.
Initially, lawmakers quibbled over the dollar amount, with the Alaska State Senate approving a $5,500 payout and the state House rejecting that, per the report. Negotiators considered a $3,850 compromise, but that collapsed, and lawmakers settled on the $3,200 figure.
“For the four years I’ve been down here, we’ve practiced fiscal restraint and tried to keep money in savings, make sure we put Alaska’s future on the front foot, and that’s where my vote came from today,” said Democratic state Rep. Grier Hopkins, who cast a swing vote in the matter, Alaska Public Media reported.

Funding for the stimulus checks comes from the Permanent Fund Dividend, and the checks are reportedly among the largest in state history for the stimulus program.
