AUSTIN, Texas – The Texas House of Representatives approved a measure – H.B. 492 – that makes financial literacy education in Texas a prerequisite for graduation from any public or charter high school in the state. H.B. 492 was championed by state Rep. Beverly Woolley (R-136) chair of the House Calendar Committee. It now goes to the state Senate. Woolley has been a long time proponent of financial education. Texas Credit Union League President/CEO Dick Ensweiler said he was “delighted that our lawmakers, led by financial literacy champion Rep. Beverly Woolley, joined together to pass such an important piece of legislation.
