JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's revenues are up. Figures released Monday by the state Office of Administration show Missouri's finances have improved mainly because of a decline in tax refunds and an increase in individual income tax collections. Revenue is up nearly 9 percent through the first two-thirds of the state's fiscal year. Missouri's 2013 budget year began last July and runs through the end of this June.
