TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Kansas officials and university economists will meet next week to issue new forecasts of state revenue through June 2013.
The forecasting team includes legislative researchers, members of the governor’s budget staff, Revenue Department officials and economists from three universities.
The April 13 meeting will include a review of economic trends. The forecasters will then issue revised revenue projections for the current fiscal year, which ends June 30, and the 2013 fiscal year, which starts July 1.
The most recent forecast was issued in November and showed Kansas collecting $6.2 billion in revenues in both fiscal years. But tax collections are already running $72 million ahead of the forecast so far this year.
