?? ?    According to the economic forecast presented recently to the State Budget Committee, Indiana’s revenue will be much lower for the current year than previously projected.
    The state’s revenue for the current fiscal year is now expected to be at least $720 million less than was forecast one year ago. The state is currently in the middle of fiscal year 2009, which runs from July 1, 2008, to June 30, 2009.
    Analysts expect little improvement in the state’s revenue forecast over the next two years, as well as a continued rise in the unemployment rate. The state may see unemployment levels reach as high as 8% in 2010 before the employment market improves, according to the recent forecast.
    “We must work together to follow through with our obligation to fully fund Indiana’s public schools,” said State Senator James Lewis.  “Although the revenue forecast is lower than expected, we must meet the needs of Hoosiers who rely on state services.”
