FRANKFORT, Ky. -- Several of the state's top economists are scheduled to meet in Frankfort on Thursday afternoon to make projections about how Kentucky's business climate will fare in the year ahead.

Those projections from the economists serving on the Consensus Forecasting Group will be used to predict state government revenue for both the General Fund and Road Fund.

The panel has a strong track record for accurately predicting economic trends and projecting tax revenue. The meeting will be at 1 p.m. EDT in the Capitol Annex in Frankfort.
