Amend Chapter IV, Section I, Insurance and Banking by adding a new paragraph 15.

15. Public Banking - We support Public Banking consistent with the 'Greening the Dollar' plank - that is, that the power to create money no longer resides with banks, private or public. We support the expansion of state and municipal public banking based on the model of the Bank of North Dakota, which does not create money when it lends, but lends only funds already deposited with the bank. 


Approval of this proposal will amend the 2018 GPUS Platform.
