(This amendment restores funding for the state-supplied Algebra Readiness diagnostic test. Second-year funding for the test was eliminated in the introduced budget. The amount restored ($425,000) is less than the amount removed in the introduced budget ($600,000) because the contract for the test was recently renegotiated and the renegotiated price is lower. A companion amendment in Item 147 restores the language concerning the test in the Standards of Learning Algebra Readiness program.)
