Monthly revenues still strong ahead of November revenue estimating meeting

The task of providing projections for the upcoming legislative session falls on the Consensus Revenue Estimating (CRE) group, which is set to meet on November 10. Thanks in part to historic federal pandemic relief that kept businesses open and money in the hands of consumers, the Kansas budget (like many other states) is continuing to see large revenue surpluses. However, the future reliability of these gains is unknown, and the CRE group must factor this into its projections, which will set the tone for future policy decisions.

These four areas, separate but tightly linked, are at the center of all that KAC does.
