Members of the U.S. House of Representatives recently announced the creation of the Financial and Economic Literacy Caucus. The group will provide a forum for House members to promote policies that advance financial and economic education. Specific goals of the caucus include identifying and analyzing relevant legislation; hosting roundtables, briefings and other events to increase public awareness of the importance of financial and economic education; and providing a point of contact for communicating about financial education issues with other government entities, including the U.S. Senate and the Financial Literacy and Education Commission.
