November 9, 2007 - General fund and School Aid Fund revenues for the 2006-07 fiscal year will be at least $153 million larger than forecast back in May thanks in part to higher income tax revenues and lottery sales.

October tax revenue figures were released late Friday and showed total revenues for the month of $2.778 billion, up 1.1 percent from the year before.

Even though the 2007-08 fiscal year began October 1, revenues collected during the month accrue back to the previous fiscal year.

This Legislature seems to be a very bad joke

Once again we’ve been led to believe the 2007-08 budget was complete, and once again we learn that agreement has not been reached. This has gone on since May. It is impacting schools, and it is impacting MASSP membership. Many believe, because they submitted their membership materials to central office to be paid that their membership is in. It isn’t!
