(This amendment realizes savings of $3.0 million the first year and $3.0 million the second year from the general fund revenue allocated for costs of contracts for test development, administration, scoring, reporting, and other program-related costs of the Standards of Learning (SOL) testing program, pursuant to the passage of House Bill 930 Substitute which would reduce the total number of SOL tests administered from 34 to 29. Currently, there is a total of $28.1 million budgeted each year, and the reduction in the number of SOL tests as proposed in House Bill 930 Substitute will generate the savings.)
