Support for Public Banking In Arizona Is Growing

Arizonans for a New Economy believes that creation of a state bank would go a long way toward making Arizona financially healthy again. Across the country, states and cities have billions of dollars sitting in rainy day funds that are held by Wall Street banks, such Bank of America, Chase, or Wells Fargo. Public banks manage the state’s funds– tax revenue and other monies, including federal grants and matching funds– and invest the money in the public interest on Main Street, instead of in theshareholders’ interest on Wall Street 

UUJAZ Is a supporter of Arizonans for a New Economy.
