Budget process of the Commonwealth.  Changes the Commonwealth's budget from a biennial budget to a budget covering a single fiscal year beginning with the budget for the period July 1, 2012, through June 30, 2013. The bill also provides that if a general appropriation act is not passed by the General Assembly within the time frame allowed for the conducting of business in a regular session of the General Assembly, as such time frame is initially adopted by the General Assembly, then General Assembly members would no longer receive a per diem subsequent to such time frame in a regular or special session of the General Assembly held in the same calendar year, until such time as the General Assembly passes a general appropriation act.
