Revenue estimate coming Friday

in Uncategorized by

State analysts will meet  Friday to revise the state’s general-revenue estimates, an important step as lawmakers prepare to draw up a budget for the 2013-14 fiscal year. 

General revenue is a major source of money for education, health care and criminal-justice programs. Senate Appropriations Chairman Joe Negron said the revenue estimate will allow Senate leaders to set what are known as “allocations,” which divvy up money between the various parts of the budget. Earlier, the Senate had said it expected to make allocations this week.
