The state surplus has ballooned to an estimated $791 million with only weeks to go in the fiscal year, Gov. M. Jodi Rell announced Tuesday.
The estimate is up about $192.6 million from last month's figure calculated by the Office of Policy and Management, Rell's budget office.
The additional money will be deposited in the Rainy Day fund. I expect that Rell will be talking this accomplishment up all summer.
