HARRISBURG — The state House will return to the Capitol for a one-day session on Monday to debate and vote on fiscal legislation, which if left undone eventually could reduce state revenue by $235 million.

House Speaker Sam Smith, R-Punxsutawney, called members back to address a bill typically approved along with the state budget. The budget was approved and signed June 30 before the midnight deadline.

The so-called fiscal code remains unresolved because the House inserted “payday loan” language, which had not been agreed to by leaders of both chambers. The Senate took out that language. The House must now pass the overall bill again.
