NC's Hagan Introduces Bill On Financial Literacy

North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan's first bill is promoting financial literacy.

The Democratic lawmaker started work on Capitol Hill in January.

She said Wednesday her first bill would create grants for states that agree to include financial literacy material into curriculum for students from sixth grade to 12th grade.

Hagan said she wants students to get financial training before going into college or the work force.

Hagan wrote a bill in the state Senate that required financial literacy education in North Carolina public schools.

Hagan said much of the mortgage crisis might have been avoided if people had a better handle on managing finances.
