Greens and other Ecosocialists- please comment on Public Banking Senate Bill 5188.
Invest in a state economy that supports local entrepreneurs, family farm holdings, in-state businesses and green technology. Protect our biodiversity, public lands, and food security with long term investments based on real worth. Protect citizens from boom and bust profiteering. Divest our state and municipal pension funds from fossil fuels, detention centers, and for-profit prisons.
Green Party of Seattle and King County Greens continue to support a local public banking system. The feasibility study brought forward by Sawant and O’Brien in 2018 is even more relevant now that divestment from fossil fuels is trending beyond the Left Coast.
A Sustainable Future for Washington State is not speculative or hypothetical and it does not live on Wall Street.
