This weekend, Governor Jim Gilmore wraps up two weeks of golf, body surfing, and archaeological excavations at Jamestown.
Today, his administration announced the final numbers on just how good last year was for state coffers.
State revenues were officially up 175 million dollars over last year's projection.
It's NOT the quarter BILLION dollars members of the House Appropriations Committee hoped for in May.
But it is an impressive 10-point-4 percent growth over last year's revenues.
The credit goes mostly to Wall Street and individual income tax payments to the state.
