NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- State Finance Commissioner Larry Martin says overall May revenues were $31.5 million more than the state budgeted.
Martin in a release Tuesday said the sales tax growth rate rebounded in May mainly because of the sale of building materials and purchases of new automobiles.
He says sales tax collections were $11.2 million above the budgeted estimate, and the franchise and excise taxes were $8.8 million more than budgeted.
The general fund went over by $35.3 million.
