Revenue Forecast Still High

Cheyenne, Wy –
Wyoming's Revenue picture continues to improve. The states Consensus Revenue Estimating Group says this years revenue picture should improve by another 12 million and next years increase will come close to tripling that. State Economist Jim Robinson says improvements in Natural Gas and Oil Prices are big drivers behind the adjusted forecast. Robinson adds that half the projected revenue is already in the bank, and some members of the group think the state will do much better then they are saying.
