Tell Your Senators to End Conflicts of Interest at the Federal Reserve

Please take a moment to urge Congress to end conflicts of interest at the Fed.

On May 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 is.”

The measure 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.
