SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- There's good news for the state of Utah in the latest revenue report.

It shows the state nearly 46 (M) million dollars ahead of revenue projections for the first two months of the budget year.

That's on top of the surplus of nearly 94 (M) million dollars in the last budget year.

Governor Olene Walker's deputy chief of staff says this is a positive sign but warns it's still early in the budget year.

Lynne Ward says it's premature to count on this money.

And Walker hasn't even adjusted the budget she's preparing for 2006 to reflect the upswing.
