State Revenue Outpaces Expectations Again

Laramie, WY – Wyoming's General Fund revenues continue
to come in ahead of projections. The latest report from the state's Consensus Revenue Estimating Group says that deposits to the state's General Fund through November amounted to more than 362 million dollars. That exceeds the state's forecast amount by 42 million dollars. Jim Robinson is senior economist with the state's Economic Analysis Division. He says that Wyoming's mining, trade, construction and manufacturing sectors all continue to register the
largest year-over-year gains for the state. Robinson says that sales tax collections indicate that spending
remains strong throughout Wyoming. He says state collections are running at a pace of more than 21 percent ahead of the previous year.
