NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee Finance Commissioner Mark Emkes says the state's total tax collections for February mark the seventh consecutive month of positive growth this year.

Emkes said Friday that overall February revenues were $744.3 million, which is $5 million more than the state budgeted.

He said sales tax collections showed modest growth, as did several of the smaller tax categories.

The sales tax collections were $3 million more than the estimate for February. The general fund was over by $12 million.
