"C. This appropriation includes $300,000 the first year and $300,000 the second year from the general fund to pay for the related costs associated with the Department of Education promulgating regulations that provide the same criteria for eligibility for an expedited retake of any Standards of Learning (SOL) test to all students regardless of grade level or course."
