A State Bank for Maine?
There are way too many holes in the bucket! Come hear Representative Diane Russell (D-Portland) speak about how a State Bank can help keep our money in Maine - money that can fund local business and reduce our taxes. The people of North Dakota have such a bank and it has increased investment in the state and earned money from the interest income. Is this a good idea for Maine? We think so. Ms. Russell will discuss: • how a state bank works • the bill she has introduced in the state legislature • the nature of opposition of the large national banks, and what we can do to overcome that opposition Note: This event is Co-sponsored by Occupy Maine Bath/Brunswick * PeaceWorks * Maine WILPF * Merrymeeting Greens *Merrymeeting Resilience So exciting!
