AUSTIN (AP) – Comptroller Susan Combs says sales tax revenue for last month rose 9.7 percent in Texas compared to a year ago.

Combs on Wednesday reported the February sales tax figure was $1.75 billion.

She says sales tax revenues have improved for the last 11 months, reflecting increased activity in almost all major economic sectors.

Combs reports that tax collections were up in the oil and gas industry, manufacturing and retail trade.
