JACKSON — Gov. Haley Barbour is not pleased with the revenue estimates recently adopted by the Joint Legislative Budget Committee.
In a statement, Barbour wrote: “I disagree with the decision of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee to increase the revenue estimate for this year and next year by a total of $20.9 million. We cannot rely on imagined revenue when the national economy has not returned to full speed and gas prices are heading toward $4 per gallon. Mississippi will continue to feel the effects of this global recession.
“We must expect slow revenue growth over the next few years and reflect that in our spending.”
