The state's fiscal health is better than expected at the midpoint of its budget year, thanks in part to a solid performance by Wall Street, state Comptroller H. Carl McCall said Tuesday.

The general fund balance was $665.8 million above a previous forecast, and receipts were $238.7 million above projections, according to the comptroller's cash report for September.

The report also said spending was $596.7 million below expectations.

McCall said he expected the growth to continue through the remainder of the fiscal year, which ends March 31.
