Following the huge victory of the City Council moving towards divesting the City from Wells Fargo, we are now championing Senate Bill 5464, which would establish a Washington State-owned bank. This would mean that we would no longer be dependent on the big banks that fund projects like Dakota Access for our banking. Please call the members of the Senate finance committee and let them know that you support this bill. Call Script When calling Democrats: I am calling to ask you to support Senate Bill 5464. Washington State would benefit from a state-owned bank. If we had control over our own banking, we could ensure strict socially and environmentally responsible lending policies.  I ask that you support Senate Bill 5464. When calling Republicans: I am calling to ask you to support Senate Bill 5464. Washington State would benefit from a state-owned bank. During the recession of 2008, the economy in North Dakota was largely unaffected, as a result of the fact it has a state-owned bank. I ask that you support Senate Bill 5464. Members to Call Sen.
