Republican lawmakers are insisting that Pennsylvania's budget for this year was delivered on time, but a key companion bill called the fiscal code is missing.
And there's no timetable to send it to the governor.
It's the state House's turn to take a vote on the fiscal code, a piece of legislation that supports the budget. The legislation includes a $45 million funding relief package for Philadelphia schools.
But the speaker of the House already gaveled the chamber out for the summer.
