NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee Finance Commissioner Mark Emkes says the state's overall revenue collections for November are slightly more than they were this time last year.

Emkes said Tuesday that November collections were $768.2 million, which is 0.35 percent above last November.

He said November collections for this year were $17 million less than the budgeted estimate, and the general fund fell short by $13.6 million.

Emkes said the numbers continue to indicate this will be a "moderate growth year."
