Kansas has collected more tax revenue than projected for the third straight month.


Gov. Mark Parkinson said the October revenue figure shows the Kansas economy is headed in the right direction.


The Lawrence Journal World reports that the $447 million collected in October was 2.9 percent more than earlier projections, and 11.8 percent more than the amount collected in October 2009.


The state is 2.9 percent ahead of projections for the fiscal year and has collected 11.8 percent more than at the same time last year.


State budget experts meet Tuesday to project the next fiscal year's financial outlook.
