"The Oklahoma economy continues to expand heading into the Christmas shopping season," Miller said. "Relatively steady growth in gross collections has become the norm over the past few years, such that it has become somewhat expected. But as we have seen, that doesn't necessarily translate to the General Revenue Fund."
