of the 103rd General Assembly in May of last year. The revenue estimates
were revised last month when the General Assembly enacted the 2005-06
budget. The revised estimates compared with the budgeted estimates
assume a $24.3 million shortfall in sales tax collections; a surplus
of $154.9 million in franchise and excise taxes; a $13.2 million shortfall
in highway user taxes; a $21 million surplus in all other taxes; and
a net general fund surplus of $142.6 million.
