DOVER, Del. (AP) — Delaware officials say they are planning to send $300 in direct payments to taxpayers in the state.

News outlets reported Thursday that the payments are part of the state’s plan for using a $1 billion budget surplus at a time when inflation is rising and gas prices also are high.

Rep. Valerie Longhurst, the House majority leader, said it’s hoped residents could receive the money before June 30.
