I Support an Oregon State Bank

The “too big to fail” banks got billions in bailouts but they still refuse to provide credit to small local businesses and farms.  An “Oregon State Bank” would keep the money that Oregonians pay in taxes and fees in Oregon, and that would allow community banks and credit unions to extend credit to those seeking to create jobs in Oregon.  Support Onward Oregon: sign our petition asking the 2011 Legislature to develop a State Bank that will put Oregon’s money to work for our state.

I support an Oregon State Bank. Oregon has been failed by the big out-of-state banks, and we need an alternative. Oregon businesses and farms need a stable source of credit, and Oregon’s government needs a bank that will use taxpayer money for Oregon’s economy, not for Wall Street profits. I urge the Oregon Legislature to develop a State Bank that will put Oregon’s money to work for our state.
