Miss. leaders cautious in setting revenue estimate

Bryant met Monday with the Joint Legislative Budget Committee. They agreed on a 1.4 percent increase in the revenue estimate for the current year, which ends June 30. The new total is just over $4.9 billion.

They also agreed on an additional 1.6 percent increase in the estimate for fiscal 2014, which begins July 1, or roughly $5 billion.

Next year’s revenue is projected to be $43.1 million higher than this year’s.
