Consensus Revenue Estimating Conference: The Consensus Revenue Estimating Conference, the biannual economic forecasting that state officials use to figure out how much of the taxpayers' money it can spend, took place last week.  As reported by MIRS, Michigan's slow-growth economy means the state's $10 billion General Fund probably won't keep up with inflation over the next three years and the School Aid Fund (SAF) -- when adjusted for inflation -- should remain smaller than it was 10 years ago.  Revenue projections for this year's General Fund were reduced $100.9 million, but its projections for the SAF increased $114 million for a slender net nudge of $13.1 million.  This means, once again, that the Governor and lawmakers shouldn't think about huge tax cuts, a wild spending spree or start hauling out their budget-cutting knives as they embark on the Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 budget-building project.
