According to recent reports, nine states have taken action to pass laws rejecting Agenda 21 and its influence within their borders. Not surprisingly, Oklahoma, a bastian of conservatism, has led the charge.
The Oklahoma State legislature recently passed HB 2807, the Oklahoma Community Protection Act (OCPA), in order to shield Oklahoman’s rights to private property and due process within state borders.
Last year, the Oklahoma State legislature passed HB 1412 through the Oklahoma State’s Rights Committee to halt implementation of Agenda 21 within state limits.
HB 1412 was written to ensure that “the state or any political subdivision of the state shall not adopt or implement policy recommendations that deliberately or inadvertently infringe upon or restrict private property rights without due process, as may be required by policy recommendations originating in, or traceable to United Nations Agenda 21/Sustainable Development and any of its subsequent modifications, a resolution adopted by the United Nations in 1992 at its Conference on Environment and Development held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and commonly known as the Earth Summit and reconfirmed in its Rio+20 Conference held in Rio de Janeiro in June 2012, or any other international law or ancillary plan of action that contravenes the Constitution of the United States or the Oklahoma Constitution.”
The Oklahoma Senate version, SB 23 was proposed late last year and reintroduced by the Energy Committee last month. Should this bill pass, Agenda 21 would be prohibited on state, county and municipal levels.
Iowa State Senate Representative Ralph Watts championed a bill that would stop Agenda 21 from taking over land in Iowa.
State Representative Dawn Pettengill voiced fear that Agenda 21 would force residents out of rural areas to be crowded into densely populated areas.
In Missouri, State Representative Lyle Rowland explained to the Tourism committee that Agenda 21 was taking over the nation and that they must act to prevent this scheme from stealing land in Missouri.
Maine State Representative Ricky Long has introduced a bill that would make implementation of international governance illegal within state limits.
Long explained that Agenda 21 “would also threaten the sovereignty of our government as well as our established policies and civil liberties by binding us to a contract of global governance.”
The Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has supported Agenda 21, which “has struck out seeking the destruction of our [Constitutional republic]” and “threatens our nation’s sovereignty.”
In March of 2012 Mayor Beth Van Duyne and city manager Tommy Gonzalez of Irving, Texas have inspired Tennessee to pass a Joint Resolution 587 to condemn Agenda 21 as “destructive and insidious.”
They have unabashedly explained the nefarious agenda of the UN for America. This resolution strongly admonishes the deceptive language of these policies; as they are designed to coerce the public.
Tennessee also resolved an anti-Agenda 21 resolution that failed to receive Governor Bill Haslam’s signature.
Next the New Hampshire House of Representatives voted to ban UN Agenda 21 polices.
This legislation would prevent local, county and state governments from adopting the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) programs.
NH is not the only state to pass anti-Agenda 21 legislation.
In Kansas, House Resolution 6032 was approved that quashed Agenda 21 from taking over the state.
Alabama passed an all-encompassing law to protect private property rights against the tyranny of Agenda 21. SB 477, known as the “Due Process for Property Rights” Act was passed in both the Alabama House and Senate, and signed into law by Governor Robert Bentley.
