TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The state receives more bad budget news from
its November revenue collections.
The Legislative Research Department reports those collections were nearly $14 million less than anticipated, about 3 percent off.
The state expected to collect almost $410 million in general revenues during the month. It collected about $396 million.
The Research Department's report came a month after state officials issued a new financial forecast.
The department cautioned that it's difficult to read a trend from a single month. But both income and sales tax collections were short of expectations.
For the entire fiscal year, from July 1 through Nov. 30, revenues were about $2.2 billion.
