CHICAGO -- Illinois legislators and Gov. Jim Edgar were told Wednesday by the state Bureau of the Budget that state revenues are failing about $329 million short of estimates made in March.

The $329 million shortfall is a combined revision including $135 million from the current fiscal year and $194 million from fiscal 1992. Deputy Budget Director George Hovanec blamed the shortfalls on lagging state sales and corporate income taxes.
