Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

The Census Bureau goofed when it declared that California had the nation's third fastest rate of state revenue growth during the 2010-11 fiscal year, it said Tuesday.

The Census Bureau issued a revised report on state tax collections with a note that the change was "due to a calculation error that caused California's sales tax to be overstated by $6.4 billion. New Mexico replaced California as one of the four states with the largest percentage tax increase."

The revised report places California's $116.7 billion was sixth highest in the nation.The corrected April 12 Capitol Alert item on the earlier Census Bureau report can be found here.
