More coverage of SF’s recent steps toward a public bank appeared in the SF Weekly as Ida Mojadad writes:

“In Sacramento, they really are eager and curious to know what stance San Francisco is going to take on this,” said Sushil Jacobs, a task force member who works with the California Public Banking Alliance. “We’re looking to pass legislation and counties to pursue charters to pass their own legislation.”
