Second Half of Session Leads Off With Financial Literacy Hearing

The legislative session is now officially half over.  Bills which did not pass out of their house of origin are now likely dead for the remainder of the season.  As you know, once a bill passes from the house that it originates in, it needs to pass the other legislative body and be signed by the governor in order to become law.  

For supporters of financial literacy, the first hurdle has been cleared with the Thursday afternoon hearing on Senate Bill 5202.  The WSPTA was represented by Acting Region 4 Director Kristi Shafer who focused on her own experiences to help drive our message home.  If you would like to help us on the legislative team to advocate for upcoming bills in Olympia, e-mail us at
