A State Bank for Washington Invest in WA or Wall Street?
Cities and states put their money in Wall Street banks which leverage those public funds to create private profit.  Cities and states have the option of keeping their public dollars and leveraging them for their own community needs through a state or public bank.

Public Banks:
1.Take the deposits of local government funds (city or state taxes, fees, etc.).
2.Are required to benefit the public by serving local community needs.
3.Can save state and local governments millions or even billions of dollars, by cutting out middlemen and private shareholders, eliminating fees, and financing projects at lower interest rates.
4.Reinvest bank profits into the community, providing a new source of income for cities and states and a source of funding for projects such as infrastructure, renewable energy and affordable housing.
5.Are run not by politicians, but by qualified bankers serving a public mission.
6.Provide accountability and transparency to the public for bank decisions.
7.Avoid the risks of Wall Streets speculative gambling.
8.Create new jobs and spur economic growth by supporting local small businesses.
9.Partner with and support rather than competing with local community banks.
10.Can lend during times of stress and crisis, helping to sustain a healthy local economy.
