Taxes - the smallest increase in years.

The net tax increases enacted in 1993 legislative sessions are expected to produce $3.8 billion in new state revenues in FY 1994, a 1.2 percent increase over the previous year's tax collections. This is the smallest percentage increase since 1988 and the smallest dollar increase since 1989. The $3.8 billion increase includes the extension of temporary taxes and the postponement of scheduled tax reductions. Without them, new tax increases total $1.1 billion, only 0.3 percent of last year's collections.
