The goal of the Financial and Economic Literacy Caucus is to improve the financial literacy and economic education of all individuals across the United States during all stages of their lives.
The Caucus pursues this goal by informing Members of Congress about resources for their constituents, ensuring that Executive Branch agencies coordinate their financial literacy activites and pursue proven strategies, and by drafting and supporting legislation that furthers the goals of the Caucus.
Advocating Financial Literacy
By Congressman Ruben Hinojosa, 15th District of Texas
Financial Literacy Month is about empowering Americans to take control of their fiscal futures, whether by avoiding payday lenders, opening a first savings account or planning for a retirement. We all strive for a more stable financial life for ourselves and our families.
I am honored to serve as the co-chair of the Congressional Financial and Economic Literacy Caucus along with my colleague Congressman Ruben Hinojosa (D-TX-15). I truly believe this issue is so important because many of our country's economic problems can be addressed by educating Americans of all ages on financial literacy.
