from Forth Worth Star-Telegram
Texas' sales tax revenue in October was $2.03 billion, up 8.2 percent from the same month a year ago, the Texas Comptroller said. "The state's growth in sales tax revenue continued to be led by collections from the oil and natural gas-related sectors," Comptroller Susan Combs said in a release. "We also saw strong consumer spending drive gains in retail trade and the restaurant sector as well."
