December Revenues Figures Not So Bad

Yes, Georgia, there is a Santa Claus!

The Governor announced December revenue figures today and there was not the double digit damage we've become accustomed to in the last year.
The state pulled in $1,402,181,000, only $86,967,000 or 5.8 percent less than December 2008.
That brought the year-to-date totals up to negative 13.7 percent as compared to last year.
I would imagine that the presents we couldn't afford not to give had something to do with this, though sales tax revenues were down 10.6 percent from Christmas month last year.
Or maybe we're actually pulling out of this bad economy?
Yeah right.
