"Mr. Martin Goes to Washington”
Written on April 18th, 2008
State Treasurer Dean Martin will testify Tuesday before a congressional committee on the importance of financial literacy and education.
“We need Congress to emphasize education, not just regulation,” said Martin, a Republican, in announcing his appearance before the House Committee on Financial Services.
Prior to being elected state treasurer in 2006, Martin served as a state senator. During that time, he helped establish legislation designating April as “financial education month.” He also has taught financial education courses and was a founding member of the Arizona chapter of Jump$tart, a national financial literacy organization. -Matthew Benson
