Jefferson City, MO (1/5/2010) Missouri's tax collections are expected to rise a bit this year... but cuts to state services and agencies are almost assuredly still on the way.
Both Democratic Governor Jay Nixon and G-O-P legislative leaders agree on the latest estimate... which predicts a revenue rise of nearly 4 percent after July first.
That's still about 780 million dollars less than revenues in 2008.
State Budget Director Linda Luebbering (loo-ber-ing) says cuts will still be necessary.
Officials also estimate the state will collect half a (b)illion dollars less in revenue during the current fiscal year- which ends in June- than it did last year.
