Missouri Legislature Votes Against Wal-Mart Bank

Missouri Legislature Votes Against Wal-Mart Bank

The Missouri legislature recently approved SB 892, sponsored by Senator Delbert Scott, which is designed to stop Wal-Mart from opening banks in the state.

Wal-Mart has applied to run an industrial bank in Utah, a type of bank this is not regulated by the Federal Reserve.

The bill – passed by unanimous votes in both the House and Senate – bars industrial bank companies from having any branches in Missouri.

Interesting news, and I thought I would see what folks have to say about this.

    I don't care what people say about Walmart donating money to local charities and causes in the communities that they have stores in, Walmart is just plain evil.
