FL Lawmakers Introduce Financial Literacy Bill

Today, Florida lawmakers will be introducing legislation to require financial literacy in the state's high schools.

The St. Pete Times has the details:
Lawmakers, business leaders, teachers, and students will meet to introduce House Bill 29 and Senate Bill 92, the “Money Course” in High School Bill, a half-credit, required course on financial literacy for all public high school students in Florida. Press conference begins 1 p.m. at the House Press Room (Room 333), Third Floor of the Florida Capitol.
Having legislation introduced is a long way from having legislation signed into law, but this is worth watching as 2015 unfolds.
