Missouri tax revenue is higher than last year, but a dip in individual income tax collections last month has prompted some concern.
Eleven months through the current budget year, revenue has increased from last year by 2.7 percent to $6.5 billion. However, the state Office of Administration reported Thursday that individual income tax collections were down 1.4 percent from May 2011 to May 2010.
The order was handed down Friday in Peoria. It is the latest chapter in a battle between the state's attorney general and police force over the release of names of the state's Firearm Owners Identification cardholders.
