The Oregon Office of Economic Analysis released its latest revenue forecast (pdf) Thursday morning. The forecast shows an increase in revenue for the current biennium, up $126 million from the last forecast. Overall, the prediction shows the total revenue for current biennium is $14.2 billion and $15.6 billion for the 2013-15 biennium.

The May forecast is considered crucial because it comes about a month and a half before the end of the legislative session and will determine what lawmakers have to work with as they finalize the state budget.

What questions do you have about the revenue forecast?
