Gov. Ron DeSantis signs Dorothy L. Hukill Financial Literacy Act

Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday signed Senate Bill 1054, requiring financial-literacy instruction in Florida public schools.

The bill is cited as the Dorothy L. Hukill Financial Literacy Act in honor of the late Sen. Hukill, who was a strong supporter of the CPA profession.

It requires all students, starting with those who begin high school in the 2023-2024 school year, to take a half-credit financial literacy class before graduating. 

For many years, the FICPA supported Sen. Hukill’s efforts to boost financial literacy among students throughout Florida.

We thank Sen. Travis Hutson and Rep. Demi Busatta Cabrera for sponsoring the legislation and Gov. Ron DeSantis for signing the bill into law, bringing Sen. Hukill’s efforts to fruition.
