A budget proposal now in the state house would cut funding for free SAT testing.
The proposed $10 million cut comes from the House Appropriations Committee. If passed, schools would no longer provide each student with a college admissions test – students would have to pay to take the test elsewhere.

Kelly spoke talked with Michigan Radio’s Stateside program on Thursday.
