GOVERNOR RON DESANTIS SIGNS FINANCIAL LITERACY BILL
The FSDA is thrilled to announce that after nearly ten (10) years of efforts, high school students will now be required to complete a financial literacy course to receive a standard diploma. On March 22, 2022, Governor Ron DeSantis signed Senate Bill 1054 (“SB 1054”) which requires students to complete one half credit in financial literacy studies. Prior legislation made the credit available, but SB 1054 makes the credit mandatory. The FSDA submitted letters to both the Senate President and Governor DeSantis in support of same.
A very special thank you to all our members who have worked so diligently to get this legislation passed. Also, a special thank you to Dan Newman, Chair of FSDA’s Legislative Committee, and Sean Stafford, FSDA’s Lobbyist, for keeping a pulse on this newly passed legislation.
