“Actual receipts for the current fiscal year-to-date (10/01/04 – 04/30/05) for distribution to counties and cities are 4.4 percent less than MTF receipts by this same time last year.”


“Fiscal Year 2006 MTF revenue for distribution to counties and cities is, therefore, estimated to remain below Fiscal Year 2004 levels.”
