State Treasurer Scott Meacham’s press briefing this afternoon has been rescheduled.
Meacham is expected to meet with media at 10:30 a.m. Monday. The Board of Equalization’s meeting has also been rescheduled.
The meeting will now be Tuesday afternoon, instead of Monday. The board will approve estimates for revenue collections that the state’s budget will be based on. Actual collections were 25 percent lower than estimates for November. State agencies are now seeing a 10 percent cut to their montly allocations to make up the difference.

Members of the Board of Equalization include: Gov. Brad Henry, Lt. Gov. Jari Askins, Auditor and Inspector Steve Burrage, Superintendent of Schools Sandy Garrett, Attorney General Drew Edmondson, Treasurer Scott Meacham and Board of Agriculture President Terry Peach.
