for the payment of expenses connected with the processing, issuance or

duplication of GED credentials, and for the keeping of records by the

state board of regents. All expenditures from the GED credentials proc-

essing fees fund shall be made in accordance with appropriation acts upon

warrants of the director of accounts and reports issued pursuant to vouch-
