On Friday afternoon, the Revenue Estimating Conference estimated that Florida's budget shortfall will increase by an additional $135 million. This increased shortfall is due to an approximately $215-million reduction of growth in general revenue from prior estimates for the upcoming fiscal year, offset by unspent funds and a $31-million increase in the current year estimate. The revised forecast means that the 2010 – 2011 fiscal year revenue estimate is about four percent above the final collections for the 2009 – 2010 fiscal year. For the 2011 – 2012 fiscal year, forecasted growth is 6.4 percent over the 2010 – 2011 fiscal year.
