Rhode Island revenues are expected to fall $100 million below projections for the current fiscal year, state officials said last week.

Total general revenue in fiscal 2010 is projected to fall to $2.97 billion, a $455.4 million drop compared to the state’s peak in 2008. The biggest area of revenue decline is expected to be in personal income tax receipts, which are estimated to drop by 7.2%, or $69.4 million, compared to fiscal 2009, said Paul Dion, chief of analysis at the state Department of Revenue.
