ATLANTA, GA (WALB) – It's good news for Georgia's economy. Governor Perdue announced Tuesday that state revenue finally inched up in March for the first time in 15 months.

The state collected 1% more money than in March of last year. The largest gains were in gas, motor vehicle, and income taxes. For the fiscal year that ends June 30th, tax collections are still off 11.5% from last year.

Lawmakers will return to the state capitol next week with seven days remaining in the General Assembly session to hammer out a budget and close an $800 million shortfall.
