The Federal Reserve Bank stated the following:
- "On average, District sales tax collections through June continued to decrease on a year-over-year basis. All states except Alabama saw sales tax revenues decline on a month-to-month basis. According to our informal survey of District retailers, June sales continued to be below year-earlier levels. Both traffic and inventories were down, and the outlook remained low."
