Illinois budget impasse may mean no free college entrance exams this year bug - THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Nervousness about college entrance tests is acute enough as it is, but questions about whether the state can pay for those exams amid Illinois' budget impasse is adding to that anxiety this year. The unresolved budget fight in Springfield means state money used in the past to allow juniors statewide to take the ACT exam for free may not be there this year, the Chicago Tribune reported. Since 2001, the state has subsidized the tests — which cost around $50 per student — as a way to help those from diverse backgrounds get a shot at a higher education. http://www.dailyjournal.net/view/story/6578b4aa049c4e568c8f783a4545fafd/IL--Illinois-Budget-College-Tests
