Gov. Nixon releases statement regarding state revenue situation

Gov. Jay Nixon today released the following statement regarding the state’s revenue situation:

“After reviewing the preliminary February revenue figures, it is clear that even as Missouri’s economy begins to rebound, state revenues will continue to lag for a prolonged period of time. As a result, we will need to downsize the scope of state government, while protecting necessary services to the citizens of Missouri. This week, I will meet with the leadership of the Missouri House and Senate, including Republicans and Democrats, to discuss lowering the consensus revenue estimate for next fiscal year. It is my hope that we can continue to work together in a bipartisan fashion to not only balance next year’s budget, but also keep our state on sound fiscal footing for years to come.”
