From House Appropriations chairman John Read via Facebook:

“The last bit of legislative business before the Thanksgiving holiday included a meeting with the Joint Legislative Budget Committee to revise revenue projections for our current fiscal year (FY 17) and next fiscal year (FY 18). There is a revenue projection decrease of 0.3% for FY 17, which equates to around $69.7 Million. For FY 18, there is a 1.8% increase or around $104.9 million.

“We have not yet completed our Legislative Budget Recommendation for FY 18, which will likely take place sometime next month.”
