The continued growth, particularly in sales taxes, reflects a solid economic recovery in Virginia. But it also provokes political disputes about the need for one-point-four billion dollars in new taxes the General Assembly approved in April.
It's the third straight month that revenue collections exceeded the state's official expectations.
