Governor Perry Signs Financial Literacy Month Proclamation
Wednesday, April 3, 2013 7:00 AM

Texas Governor Rick Perry has declared April to be Financial Literacy Month. In a proclamation signed on the 1st day of April, 2013, Governor Perry writes, "Sound financial management is an important skill for all Texans. Whether saving for money for a home, college education or retirement, budgeting and successful financial planning are crucial to reaching our goals."

Governor Perry goes on to say, "Through careful money management, Texans of all income brackets can add to their economic security and create a better quality of life. We can achieve financial stability and independence by establishing realistic and comprehensive plans that identify financial weaknesses and build on financial strengths."

Courtney Moran, executive director of the Texas Credit Union Foundation (TCUF) says, "The issuance of this proclamation brings greater awareness to the problem of financial illiteracy in our state and in our country. Furthermore, it helps promote the importance of getting involved in the financial education of our youth as well as adults. We couldn't be more thrilled."

Governor Perry closed the proclamation with the following statement, "At this time, I encourage all Texans recognize the importance of saving, investing and having clear financial goals. Through the application of sound financial planning principles, we can live well now and in the future."
