Schmognerová predicts unexpected 2001 budget income, 2002 budget problems

Finance Minister Brigita Schmognerová predicted yesterday that state budget income this year would hit Sk200 billion, Sk19.4 billion more than planned, based largely on increased tax income. At the same time, she said support in parliament for the eradication of eight publicly financed funds is uncertain, threatening approval of the 2002 Budget which assumes the liquidation of the funds.
