The Oregon Office of Economic Analysis released the quarterly revenue forecast this morning. State economists said lawmakers will have $161 million more for the current biennium than predicted in the December 2012 forecast. The forecast for the 2013-15 budget, however, is down $74 million from the previous estimate.

The budget will be finalized once the next revenue forecast is released in May.

What questions do you have about the forecast?
