CU System
Kansas treasurer testifies about CUs fin lit program
LAWRENCE, Kan. (8/26/10)--Dennis McKinney, Kansas state treasurer, testified before a House subcommittee hearing held Tuesday in Lawrence, Kan., to discuss the state’s and credit unions’ efforts to help Kansans become more financially literate. McKinney told the House Financial Services Committee subcommittee regarding oversight and investigations about several of his outreach efforts and programs offered (wibw.com Aug. 24). “Our goal is to empower Kansas families to save, invest, and to create more opportunities to improve families and communities across Kansas,” McKinney said. Financial literacy outreach efforts he mentioned included Money$mart, a partnership with Kansas credit unions, which is designed to offer middle school students training in sound personal financial philosophies and practices in a fun environment that enhances leadership and teamwork skills. He also mentioned Save@School, which joins the State Treasurer’s office, local financial institutions and schools in teaching children to become educated consumers who will make responsible financial decisions in the future.
