State funding for No Child Left Behind Testing. Provides that all costs incurred by localities resulting from student testing required by the federal No Child Left Behind Act must be paid by the Commonwealth. Beginning with the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2006, each locality must, in each even-numbered year, submit cost estimates of such testing to the Department of Education for review and certification by the Department. The Department must certify to the Governor all such costs incurred by localities from student testing and, beginning in 2007, the Governor must include an appropriation in the budget bill and the gubernatorial amendments thereto to fund all such costs.
