Tennessee brought in nearly $500 million in more tax revenue in July than anticipated

In July — the first month of a new fiscal year — total state revenues are 8.2 million more than the revised revenue estimate and 4.9 million more than the revised general fund estimate.

However, the state cannot change its budget without the legislature reconvening, and the governor says he has no plans to call them back for a second special session. As a result, the state will not be able to earmark those funds for extra economic stimulus or to reinstate scrapped costs like teacher pay increases.
