Missouri State Budget in good shape

When Missouri Gov. Matt Blunt delivers his state of the state speech Wednesday, Northwest Missouri lawmakers will finally get a sense of the direction the state budget is headed.The governor, along with House and Senate budget leaders, announced a state revenue estimate last week that predicts 4.9 percent growth this year, and 4.5 percent growth next year. That means lawmakers would have an estimated $7.358 billion of general revenue, the most discretionary portion of the total budget, to divvy up for fiscal year 2007.
