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 covering the immediately following fiscal year 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 an allowance for expenses 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 covering such fiscal year.
