DALLAS — Oklahoma’s general fund revenue fell below expectations for the 10th consecutive month in October, but Treasurer Scott Meacham said the state’s economy may be poised for recovery, as the decline was not as steep as in recent months.

October revenue totaled $374.4 million, some $83.3 million less than estimated earlier and $116.1 million less than last October. Revenue was 18.2% below the official estimate, which Meacham called a positive after revenue for the first three months of fiscal 2010 were down 26%.
