TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The state receives more bad news about its budget from preliminary tax collection figures for February.

Those figures from the Department of Revenue show that tax collections were about $12 million short of expectations last month.

The state's official economic forecast predicted Kansas could collect $251 million in general tax revenues. Instead, it collected about $239 million.

Revenues have been running short of expectations throughout the current fiscal year. Fiscal 2009 ends June 30.

The Legislative Research Department will issue a final report on February revenue collections, possibly later this week. That will be followed by a new deficit projection for the fiscal 2010.

That projected shortfall is now $654 million.
