Ask your local credit union to support AB 857 the Public Banking Act!
Public banking friends,
If you have divested your own finances by moving your money into a credit union, we need you. Call or email your credit union’s Branch Manager or CEO and ask for a meeting to discuss support for AB 857, legislation in the California Assembly enabling municipalities to set up public banks.
You can contact us to arrange for one of our public banking experts or CPBA Legislative team members to attend the meeting with you, either by phone or in person!
We are very close to passing AB 857.
Support from credit unions will push us over the top!
When you talk with your credit union, explain that there is much in this legislation to benefit Credit Unions:
Say how much you appreciate your credit union and how you would love if they support efforts throughout the state to pass AB 857 enabling the Department of Business Oversight (DBO) to charter public banks provided they meet strict fiduciary standards demanded of banking institutions.
Email your credit union using the template below and attach the PDF document so they can easily add their name to the Public Banking Act's endorsers list to show support for their community.
