General Fund net revenues in August totaled $550 million, $10.3 million, or 1.9 percent, above estimates, Treasury Secretary Juan Zaragoza-Gómez said Thursday.
Puerto Rico Gov. Alejandro García-Padilla introduced Wednesday the measure paving the way for a $9.8 billion General Fund budget, and a $28.8 billion consolidated budget for Fiscal 2016.
Puerto Rico General Fund revenue collections reached $676 million in October, beating government estimates by $7 million. However, the results were $185.6 million less when bumped up against October 2013 figures.
