ATLANTA — Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal says the state's net tax collections in January increased more than 6.4 percent compared to this time last year.

Deal on Monday announced that January collections totaled nearly $2.05 billion. The total includes about $67.4 million due to changes to the state's gas tax and other fees that lawmakers approved in 2015 to pay for road and bridge maintenance and construction.

Deal's statement says total tax revenue for the financial year is about $12.49 billion, an 8.9 percent increase compared to the same time frame in 2015.
