Congresswoman Beatty Marks Financial Literacy Month in House of Representatives

On April 28, 2017, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) submitted the following statement into the Congressional Record in recognition of Financial Literacy Month:

Mr. Speaker, I rise today as Co-Chair of the House Financial and Economic Literacy Caucus in recognition of Financial Literacy Month.

Every day, Americans are faced with financial decisions that impact their lives and their families. That is why promoting financial and economic literacy is so important and why we draw attention to it each and every April.

Financial literacy is a lifelong journey, whether writing a monthly budget, managing your credit, or saving for retirement, every American needs to understand the basic principles of planning, saving and investing for the future.

In that spirit, I urge my colleagues to cosponsor/support bipartisan House Resolution 243, which promotes the ideals and goals of Financial Literacy Month, and to also participate in tomorrow’s Financial Literacy Day on the Hill.

Let’s ensure more Americans can build a better financial future this Financial Literacy Month and all year round. 

Thank you Mr. Speaker and I yield back.
