General revenue numbers to be revised

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – State analysts are slated to meet Dec. 18 to revise estimates of general-revenue taxes, which play a key role in funding Florida’s schools, health-care programs and prison system, according to a schedule posted online Friday.

The analysts, meeting as the state Revenue Estimating Conference, huddle periodically during the year to review data and update such things as sales-tax estimates.

The process is closely watched in the Capitol, with the results helping determine how much money the Legislature will have for the state budget.
