Why should Wall Street benefit from tax dollars? Arizonans should benefit from Arizona tax dollars. With the creation of a state bank, Arizona could bring state tax dollars back to our state and invest them here at home in infrastructure projects, local business lending, and debt relief for citizens with student loans or underwater mortgages.
Arizona’s economy was crippled by the Wall Street crash, and its recovery is lagging. Legislators face a multi-million-dollar budget shortfall and court-ordered refund of $317 million to public education. Learn how a public bank can help solve these problems and fix Arizona’s economy.
Arizonans for a New Economy co-directors Jim Hannley and Pamela Powers Hannley explain the benefits of public banking.
Special guest, State Senator Steve Farley will update us regarding bipartisan public banking efforts in the Arizona Legislature in 2015.
Learn about next steps and how you can be involved.
