Pennsylvania's state budget makers are getting better news about the spending plan they're trying to assemble in the waning days of June.
The state Legislature's fiscal analysts said Monday that they're estimating state tax collections this year and next year will be just $220-million behind where Governor Tom Corbett projected them in February. That's a $300-million improvement from the $520 million revenue gap the Independent Fiscal Office identified in its May 1st estimate.
They're projecting tax collections will grow 3.8-percent in this fiscal year and by 1.2-percent in the fiscal year beginning July 1st. The state Senate is currently considering a $28.3-billion spending plan penned by House Republicans.
It would boost public schools spending by $100-million and cut business taxes by an estimated $360-million.
