HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania — Pennsylvania lawmakers are returning to the Capitol with growing questions over the state government's increasingly confusing budget situation.

Senate Democratic leader Jay Costa told a Pennsylvania Cable Network interviewer Monday that it's unclear how lawmakers will move forward because they are in uncharted territory.

On Tuesday, Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf is delivering a budget proposal for the fiscal year beginning July 1. But he and the Republican-controlled Legislature are at still odds over billions in the current fiscal year.

Republican Sen. Randy Vulakovich says the situation is shameful and that state government lacks people willing to compromise. He spoke at a hearing where senators questioned a state treasury official over Wolf's legal authority to spend money above the amounts he allowed in December appropriations bill he signed.
