State revenue projections for 2017–19 increase by $628 million

Washington’s projected Near General Fund revenue collections for the 2017–19 state budget have increased by nearly $628 million, according to estimates released today by the Washington State Economic and Revenue Forecast Council.

“With collections running above the previous forecast and continued positive signs in the underlying economy, we revised the forecast upward,” said Steve Lerch, forecast council executive director.

Today’s forecast is the largest quarterly increase for the state since before the Great Recession.
