CHICAGO — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon this week unveiled a $23.9 billion all-funds fiscal 2011 budget that banks on an economic rebound, federal funds, and cutting spending and jobs to keep the state in the black.

The budget anticipates tax revenues of $7.2 billion, up from the nearly $7 billion the top-rated state expects to collect in the current fiscal year. The fiscal 2010 budget originally relied on $7.7 billion of revenue, but revisions forced Nixon to cut spending and jobs last year.
