Gov. Mike Dunleavy introduced a COVID-19 economic response plan Friday afternoon to include the payment of his previously proposed supplemental Alaska Permanent Fund dividend check.

 “If Alaskans are unable to work to earn a living and pay their rent, to buy food, to buy diapers for their children, then we have failed to account for the hardships that many Alaskans are currently facing,” Dunleavy said. “Immediate and far-reaching economic relief is needed right now.”
