GED Fee Waiver in H.B. 305

On December 1st, Alan Toops, executive director of the Ohio Literacy Network, testified in support of restoring the GED fee waiver process. Other testimony came from ABLE providers. The fee was reduced from $60 to$40 but for someone in a minimum wage job, that’s still roughly 6 hours of work. Testimony should continue today. Check back for more information and please consider contacting your representative to encourage their support.
