PA House to Return from Summer Break Monday

Pennsylvania House Speaker Sam Smith is calling the chamber back to session early next week to consider an element of the budget package that's been held up over a payday lending provision.
Smith's office said Wednesday the 203-member House will return from its summer break Monday afternoon.
The Senate adjourned last week after stripping out a provision that suggested Republican leaders in both chambers favored legalization of the high-interest payday loans. The bill, known as the fiscal code, directs spending of hundreds of millions of dollars in public money.
Governor Tom Corbett asked legislative leaders to pass the bill as soon as possible, and his budget secretary warned a fiscal code stalemate could have negative effects on state government.
Corbett signed the main budget bill June 30th.
