Thank you for emailing your state legislators and urging them to pass the New York Public Banking Act (S1754/A3352)!
Right now, leadership in the state Senate and Assembly is deciding what will be on the agenda for the remainder of the legislative session. Public banking has massive support from New Yorkers across the state, including from a majority of the Senate. That’s why Wall Street is lobbying hard behind the scenes to kill the bill. Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins and Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie need to hear from New Yorkers, like you!
PLEASE CALL THE SENATE MAJORITY LEADER AND ASSEMBLY SPEAKER TODAY!
TELL THEM TO BRING THE NEW YORK PUBLIC BANKING ACT TO A VOTE NOW!
Call NYS Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins: 518-455-2715
Call NYS Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie: 518-455-3791

Hello, my name is __________________ from (neighborhood/town) and I am calling to urge the Majority Leader/Speaker to bring the New York Public Banking Act (bill number S1754/A3352) to the floor for a vote this session. The New York Public Banking Act would create a safe and appropriate regulatory framework for public banking, ushering in democratically-controlled financial institutions that will meet community needs – like affordable housing and small business development, renewable energy infrastructure, and fair financial services.
