DALLAS — Kansas Gov. Mark Parkinson said he may be forced to make additional cuts to the fiscal 2010 budget as revenue continues to fall faster than expected.

The Department of Revenue said on Monday that general fund revenue in February totaled $195 million, down 27% from the projected $266 million. The $71 million shortfall in February brings the decline in the last three months to $105 million below November’s official forecast by the state’s Consensus Estimating Group.
