Kansas Officials See Scant Change in Revenue Outlook.



     TOPEKA, Kan. - Kansas officials have made relatively little adjustment in projections for the state's overall revenues through June 2014. The officials and economists issued a new fiscal forecast Friday, revising one issued in November. The new forecast predicts the state will collect $6.2 billion in revenues during the current fiscal year and $5.5 billion for the fiscal year beginning in July. The figures are close to previous projections. The forecasters predicted revenues would decline by $745 million during the next fiscal year following income tax cuts enacted last year. The drop would be 12 percent. Kansas Legislative Research Department Director Raney (RAY'-nee) Gilliland said forecasters believe the economy will remain stagnant in the near future. The forecasting team includes legislative researchers, the governor's budget staff, Department of Revenue officials and university economists.
