Kansas revenues in September totaled $562 million, the Department of Revenue reported last week, marking the sixth consecutive month of higher revenues from the previous year.

Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan said it is a good sign that revenues are up 6% from September 2010, but the economy still has a long way to go.

“While we’ve had six months of an upward swing, we are still mindful that the economy is still in a fragile state and more than 100,000 Kansans are still struggling and out of work,” Jordan said.

Revenue in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 totals $1.4 billion, he said, an increase of 8% from the same period of fiscal 2011 and 4%, or $66.2 million, more than expected.
