Wash. CUs help senator advance fin-lit bill
FEDERAL WAY, WASH (4/21/09)--U.S. Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) is touring the state of Washington to advance her Financial and Economic Literacy Improvement Act of 2009--and has asked three credit union executives to help. The executives are: Washington Credit Union League President/CEO John Annaloro, who spoke at Foster High School; Richland-based Gesa CU President/CEO Christina Brown, who appeared in Pasco at Columbia Basin College; and Spokane Teachers CU President/CEO Steven Dahlstrom, the Washington League said. Starting at Tukwila’s Foster High School, Murray traveled the state, speaking to groups about her legislation, which is co-sponsored by Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss). The bill aims to promote age-appropriate courses and activities for K-12 students and those attending two- and four-year colleges. The bill also would distribute $250 million per year for five years to states for financial literacy programs at the K-12 level, and at two- and four-year colleges. Washington credit unions are hosting a forum today for teachers to explore, reveal and problem-solve financial issues affecting youth. The forum seeks to develop and implement solutions to meet youth’s financial needs.
