Get our tax dollars out of Chase, and Invest In Kentucky!

    1. Petition by

      Occupy Lexington KY

The General Fund of the Commonwealth is over 8 billion dollars annually, we call on Governor Beshear, Treasurer Hollenbach, and the Kentucky Legislature to reinvest the General Fund and all other Kentucky funds, into a bank that is headquartered in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Banks lend idle funds and by investing our public funds within the state of Kentucky the availability of credit in Kentucky will spur new investment in the state, providing much-needed jobs to our citizens and keeping our funds away from unethical and untrsustworthy institutions like JP Morgan Chase, which helped contribute to the financial collapse of 2008.
