State House Approves Budget’s Fiscal Code

The state House of Representatives returned to Harrisburg on Monday long enough to approve an amended fiscal code, guaranteeing the money allocated in Pennsylvania’s 2013-2014 fiscal year budget.

After having begun their summer recess following the passage and enactment of the budget on June 30, the House was forced to return to approve a fiscal code from which the Senate had, at the last minute, removed language dealing with payday lending.

The fiscal code is what gives the Commonwealth the authority to spend the money which is budgeted.

Cathy Clark, of Radio PA News, reports there was little discussion on the fiscal code, other than a reference by Representative John Maher to a “communication gap between this chamber (the House) and the one down the hall (the Senate).”
