BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota continues to see bleaker-than-expected state tax revenue collections from declining oil activity in the state.

Office of Management and Budget Director Pam Sharp says revenues for April were $214.1 million. That’s $33.4 million less than what had been projected.

Tax collections already are down more than $53 million since a new revenue forecast was done in January.

Sharp says most of the decline is due to falling sales tax collections due to a drop in oil drilling, and slumping prices for crude and agriculture commodities.
