Public Banks (AB 857) -- Organizational Endorsement Form
The California Public Banking Alliance (CPBA) represents public banking activists and advocates in 10 cities and regions including: Los Angeles, San Francisco, East Bay (Oakland, Alameda County, Berkeley, Richmond), South Bay (San Jose), Santa Rosa, Santa Barbara, Eureka, Santa Cruz, Orange County and San Diego.

AB 857 is an enabling bill that will grant cities, counties and regions the power to recapture public dollars for re-investment into local communities. The bill provides protection of public deposits, requires FDIC insurance, and strengthens local banking by requiring public banks to partner with, and serve as wholesale bankers to, credit unions and community banks.

Instead of placing billions of our cities' finances in predatory Wall Street banks, we now have the opportunity to build a new alternative banking system through locally-controlled socially and environmentally responsible public banks. AB 857 will provide a pathway for cities, counties and regions to form public banks that are regulated by the State Department of Business Oversight according to existing banking law.

Please support AB 857. Now is our moment in history to pave the way for a strong, transparent, and compliant institution that will reinvest in housing, transportation, clean energy, and jobs for the people of California.
