(Harrisburg) -- Pennsylvania's last bill related to the 2013-14 state budget is on its way to the governor's desk following passage in the House.

State House representatives approved the fiscal code legislation by a 103 to 85 vote today during a rare return to Harrisburg after the start of their annual summer break. They then recessed.

The unusual voting session was required after the Senate stripped out a provision that suggested Republican leaders in both chambers favored legalization of the high-interest payday loans.

State budget officials said passage of the fiscal code was needed to avoid negative effects on state government.

Governor Corbett signed the primary budget bill on June 30.
