U.S. Bancorp believes that an important part of responsible corporate citizenship is participation in the political and public policy process. The focus of these efforts is on issues that affect the company, our operations and our stakeholders, such as our employees, customers, shareholders and local communities. As a large financial institution, our business is subject to extensive laws and regulations at the federal, state and local levels, and changes to these laws can significantly affect how we operate, our revenues and the costs we incur. It is important for U.S. Bancorp to engage in the political process in order to advance our long-term interests. Meaningful involvement in the public policy arena includes participating in the electoral process by making informed political contributions and engaging in lobbying activities.
