WA legislators continue hot start on cold campus
Posted by Joe Adamack on January 15, 2024
Even though Washington legislators are off to a hot start diving into hundreds of issues in just one week, they were doing so at a very cold Capitol campus as evidenced by multiple frozen fountains (pictured) throughout the campus.
Today saw the House Education Committee hold a public hearing on House Bill 1915, which received positive testimony for requiring financial education to be taught in public schools at the elementary, middle, and high school level and would make the subject a graduation requirement.
Later this week, your GoWest team will continue to work with legislators on multiple issues. Though they are well intended, they could have significant unintended consequences for financial institutions and other industries if passed as is, which can make up a significant portion of legislative work pulling together credit union resources from compliance, legal, regulatory, legislative and more.
