STATEMENT OF GOV. BARBOUR ON PRELIMINARY SEPTEMBER REVENUES

“The state’s preliminary revenue collections as of today fell slightly below our conservative estimate for the fiscal year. September revenue was 1.26 percent, or $5.2 million, below expectations. As we begin planning for the FY 2012 budget, we must remember the global economy is not strong. Spending must be restrained in FY 2012 due to the loss of hundreds of millions of federal stimulus dollars and the fragile economic recovery.”
