House passes CUNA-backed financial literacy statement
WASHINGTON (5/1/08)—The House late Tuesday passed a resolution in support of the goals of Financial Literacy Month, a resolution backed by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). Earlier this month, CUNA submitted a statement for the record of a House hearing urging approval of the resolution touting the ideal of Financial Literacy Month. In the statement, CUNA noted that credit unions have traditionally made financial education a part of their mission, providing financial information and training to members on a one-to-one basis. Along with noting the important financial literacy initiatives supported by credit unions, CUNA noted: "For credit unions, financial literacy is not just something we do in April – financial education is a service we provide our members each day of the year."
