Despite an April revenue haul that exceeded forecasts, there is still anxiety on Beacon Hill about overall revenue shortfalls and economic uncertainty. So are new taxes on the mind of House Speaker Ron Mariano?

Mariano sat down with WBZ-TV for an interview one week after Sen. President Karen Spilka said new taxes were not on her radar screen "right now."

"I don't even have a radar screen," Mariano said. "What I have is the situation as it exists today. You know, we did a major tax cut probably the biggest tax cut we've done in the last 20 years and we did it because we wanted to improve our competitiveness. So we need to have that play out. That we are retaining people, that college kids graduating stay in the state."
