Supporting Financial Literacy LegislationMarch 1, 2023
Earlier today, I attended a bipartisan press conference concerning financial literacy legislation. Knowing how to manage one’s finances is an essential part of life. Yet many young adults don't know how credit works, how to balance their bank accounts, how student loans work, or how to resist impulse purchases. The best time to learn these types of things is before it is needed – when a student is in high school. But too many Connecticut high school students are not offered this type of class. This legislation would address this issue. I am glad to support and look forward to following this bill.
