Legislative Action Expo – Jan. 11 (DPBC & PDA+) Retake Our Democracy:

https://retakeourdemocracy.org/


VFP has taken the lead in lifting up the original intention of November 11th – as a day for peace.
As veterans we know that a day that celebrates peace, not war, is the best way to honor the sacrifices of veterans.
We want generations after us to never know the destruction war has wrought on people and the earth.

New Mexico Public Bank Legislation: What You Need to Know

The time has come for New Mexico to make the bold step of taking control of its own state finances. New Mexico loses up to half of the money it spends on debt service in interest payments to big banks. Let’s bring that money home by creating a public bank.

A public bank is a financial institution owned by the state of New Mexico that finances
New Mexico infrastructure projects and small businesses, clean energy, affordable housing, and many other economic development projects that need Local Economic Development Act (LEDA) loans, through participation loans with community banks and credit unions. The LEDA loans can be enhanced with public bank loans to support local economic development. Instead of selling bonds to out-of-state banks and investors, a public bank can replace the need for the issuance of bonds and help New Mexico by bringing the debt service payments back to New Mexico, as public bank income, and offering lower interest rates. A simple $50 million in capital can generate as much as $500 million in funds to leverage the projects we need.

Alliance for Local Economic Prosperity – Public Bank for NM

Answering today’s questions for tomorrow’s New Mexico

What will be New Mexico’s most powerful tools for creating a healthier, more diversified economy, given the environmental, water sufficiency, and climatic challenges we face in the next decade and beyond? How will New Mexico manage our financial resources to be sure we provide culturally-inclusive social and economic development? How will we foster lifelong educational opportunities, healthy lifestyles, economic justice, and equitable access to public services and facilities for everyone? The Case for a Public Bank

Working together we can establish a Public Bank for New Mexico, to finance the bold changes it will take for our communities to overcome today’s obstacles and seize tomorrow’s opportunities.
