State revenue was up last month

The state had a 2.2% increase in revenue in April.  On a year-to-date basis, total revenue collections rose 4.1 percent through April, ahead of the annual forecast of 3.6 percent growth.  Final payments for tax year 2012 and the first estimated tax payment for tax year 2013 were due from corporations April 15, which helped the numbers.
