Congrats to the LSCU & Affiliates advocacy team! Gov. Ron DeSantis signed HB 7071 into law on June 24, requiring all of Florida’s school districts to offer a half credit elective on financial literacy. Financial literacy will now be the only elective that is required to be offered in every school district.

While the League sought legislation to make financial literacy a requirement for high school graduation, this is a tremendous step in the right direction. This is a culmination of several years of work toward educating lawmakers on the importance of financial literacy for young people and the significance of the credit union movement. The law becomes effective July 1, 2019.
