NEW CASTLE, Del. (AP) - The panel that sets Delaware's official revenue projections has increased its revenue figures for the current and upcoming fiscal years.
The Delaware Economic and Financial Advisory Council boosted its revenue estimates on Friday by about $20 million for the current year and about $4 million for the fiscal year that starts July 1.
The revenue increases, combined with other budget revisions and funds not allocated in the operating budget for the new year, will leave about $56 million available to lawmakers as they draft a capital budget for fiscal 2013 over the coming days.
Lawmakers will decide how much in grant money to distribute to fire companies, nonprofit groups and community agencies.
