Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has declared April 2010 as California Financial Literacy Month
"California maintains one of the largest and most prosperous economies in the world, and our financial well-being is strongly tied to that of the rest of the country and the entire world. But our state is only as strong as our citizens, which is why it is important for all of us to know how best to save, spend and invest our money. Making wise financial decisions and obtaining the skills to be economically independent allows us to avoid money mismanagement, cut wasteful spending and prepare for events and decisions to come. This is why Financial Literacy Month’s theme this year is “Right Here Right Now – Start Saving for Your Future.” Groups and organizations across California will be working to help our citizens take advantage of resources, establish savings and be in charge of their finances."
