As it stands now, Wisconsin's general revenue fund is projected to be about 651-million dollars short of covering the spending commitments in the two-year state budget.

The Legislative Fiscal Bureau released the memo Thursday. There are many variables which could make the state's financial picture better -- or worse. The bureau says revenue increases, inflation, state employee compensation or state program caseloads are not factored in.
