State revenue continues on struggling path
JACKSON – Through February of the current fiscal year, which started July 1, the state has collected $38.2 million, or 1.16 percent, less in revenue than it did during the same period one year ago.
And when comparing just revenue from general tax collections and other recurring sources of revenue, the state has collected $56 million, or 1.76 percent, less than during the same period last year. That figure excludes new revenue sources garnered when the Legislature swept up various special funds during the 2016 session and excludes one-time sources of money.
