  As of July 1, l997 the fee for the GED examination in

  leasing GED test materials and additional requirements for
  test security have necessitated this increase.

  Administrators of GED Applications), adult educaton
  administrators, and GED Chief Examiners of this important
  change.  Questions should be directed to Dr. Patricia
  Ta'ani, Specialist, Office of Vocational and Adult Education
