State economists are detailing what the latest revenue picture looks like for Colorado.
DENVER (AP) - Colorado's economy has been slowly recovering from the recession. The state ended the last fiscal year with $7.6 billion in general fund revenue, about $239 million more than what economists had projected.
The better-than-expected tax revenue prevented further budget cuts to schools and returned a property tax break for some seniors.
The current fiscal year began July 1. Economists have said they think the state could see slower growth this year.
