The money rolls in

Posted By on Mon, Dec 4, 2006 at 10:37 AM

The state revenue report is out. Net state income for November of $317.1 million was 6.9 percent above the same month a year earlier and 1.8 percent above the revised forecast. No downtown downturn yet, in other words.

Which reminds me: Did you notice the broad hint Gov.-elect Beebe made the other day about the fact that we all may not be fully informed of some financial consequences that could affect the surplus? And it's not just the improvident veterans nursing home deal the state has gotten hung with in Fayetteville. The Huckabee administration is stringing out a dispute with the feds over overpayments to Arkansas in the Medicaid program. This could be a $25 million lick for the new governor to cope with.
