Maryland fin lit task force bill to have two CU seats
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (2/12/08)--A Maryland financial literacy task force would have two credit union seats, if pending legislation is approved. One representative would be from a state-chartered credit union and the other from a federal-chartered credit union headquartered in Maryland (Focus Newsletter Feb. 11). The bill was introduced in the Maryland House of Representative and the State Senate. Sen. C. Anthony Muse (D-Prince Georges County) introduced the Senate version Feb. 1, said the Maryland and District of Columbia Credit Union Association. The bill was assigned to the Education, Health and Environmental Affairs Committee. State Del. Dana Stein (D-Baltimore) introduced an indentical bill in the House last week. The bill, “The Task Force to Study Mandatory Financial Literacy Education in Maryland,” would create a task force to improve financial education in Maryland public schools.
