Well over 100 people attended a PSARA sponsored forum on the establishment of a state bank in WA. The forum featured State Treasurer James McIntire, PSARA member State Rep. Bob Hasegawa (a candidate for the WA State Senate in the 11th district) and PSARA member and community banker Darel Grothaus. It was a lively discussion before an audience that largely supported a state bank modeled after the successful state bank of North Dakota.
