Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita releases list of suggested financial New Year's resolutions for Hoosiers
Indianapolis, Ind - At a time of year when many are making resolutions to get physically fit in 2007, Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita encourages Hoosiers to also include financial fitness as part of their plan for a healthier lifestyle.
"The most popular New Year's resolutions often involve losing weight, exercising more, or giving up unhealthy habits such as smoking," Rokita said. "But many people overlook financial fitness, which is key to an overall healthy lifestyle. Being financially fit means understanding your income, how much you spend, how much you save, how much you invest, and ultimately, your credit history."
Some suggested New Year's financial resolutions - "casholutions," - for Hoosiers to consider in 2007:
"Taking the proper steps now toward financial fitness will better prepare Hoosiers for the future and will improve Indiana's overall economic health," Rokita said.

About Indiana Investment Watch
Indiana Investment Watch is a broad-based campaign created by Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita as an effort to reach and educate residents who have investments or may soon be looking for investment opportunities. Created after a statewide survey showed that nearly two-thirds of Indiana adults who own financial investments have little or no knowledge about potential fraud schemes or the security of investments, this program combats the lack of investment education among all Hoosiers. More information about the program and its initiatives can be found at http://www.indianainvestmentwatch.com/.
Indiana Investment Watch is a free service and is funded entirely from the fines paid by stock brokerage firms in connection with the settlement of stock analyst conflict of interest cases.
