Please take a moment to urge Congress to end
conflicts of interest at the Fed.
22nd, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) along with Senators Barbara Boxer (D-CA)
and Mark Begich ( D- AL) introduced legislation
to prohibit banking industry executives from serving as directors of the 12
Federal Reserve regional banks.
“It is a
blatant conflict of interest for Jamie Dimon, the CEO and chairman of JPMorgan
Chase, to serve on the New York Fed’s board of directors,” Sanders said. “If
this is not a clear example of the fox guarding the henhouse, I don't know what
would also prohibit Federal Reserve employees or board members from owning
stock or investing in companies that the Fed oversees, regulates and supervises
without any exceptions or waivers.
Please cosponsor S. 3219
