NAIFA-WI members Kris Alfheim and Sherri Mitchell and lobbyist George Ermert attended a bill-signing ceremony with Governor Tony Evers for legislation requiring high school students to complete a personal finance course prior to graduation.

Grassroots advocates from NAIFA-WI have advocated on behalf of the bill. The offices of Representative Alex Dallman, the bill's lead author, and Senator Joan Ballweg thanked NAIFA by name for supporting the bill. The coursework required by the new law will give students a basic understanding of finance-related subjects, including money management, saving, investing, and handling debt.
