WASHINGTON — The District of Columbia is lowering its revenue estimates for fiscal 2010 and 2011 amid the weak economy, but it’s making sure it will stay within its debt cap, chief financial officer Natwar Gandhi said Monday.

Total revenues for fiscal 2010, which ends Sept. 30, have been revised lower by $45.4 million from a February estimate, Gandhi said at a press briefing. Revenues for fiscal 2011 are now estimated to be $99.8 million less than that estimate. Revenues for fiscal 2012 through 2014 also have been revised lower, he added.
