WA State Reps battle UN Agenda 21 with new bills
Jan. 17, 2013
Washington State recently made news after local farmers in association with the Washington State Farm Bureau adopted new policy blocking all aspects of U.N. Agenda 21.
United Nations Agenda 21 is based off of the The Commission on Global Governance’s controversial 1995 report entitled “Our Global Neighborhood” that calls for more power to the United Nations in countries affairs, including the United States.
One of the most troubling aspects of this is the United Nations claim that it has the authority to change policy in the United States and even dictate what people can or can’t do on their own private property under the supposed guise of environmentalism to the point of restricting massive amounts of land to American citizens.
Residents across the country and in Washington State are attempting to block Agenda 21 by stopping its policies that are often labeled under more friendly names such as “sustainable development”, a term coined by the United Nations. Opponents of Agenda 21 point out that they agree on taking better care of the planet but it needs to be left out of the hands of foreign government’s, especially when the proposed plans are far beyond anything rational.
Washington Republicans Matt Shea, David Taylor, and Jason Overstreet, a group known for their principled and consistent support of the constitution, sponsored 3 new bills that would halt any foreign encroachment on private property.
The first bill, HB 1164, would prohibit the use of international law to infringe on property rights within the state. Rep Jay Rodne, the primary sponsor of HB 1165, proposses prohibiting the state of Washington and it’s political subdivisions from adopting and developing enviromental and developmental policies that would infringe or restrict private property rights without due process. The third bill, HB 1167, would repeal growth management planning requirments already on the books in Washington in chapter 36.70A RCW, a bill that “is the single largest attack on private property rights in Washington State over the last 23 years,” says Rep David Taylor.
“We have seen an exceeding number of bills in the Legislature embracing and implementing actions derived from international laws, regulations and policies. The Growth Management Act is a prime example of the state implementing international policies related to ‘sustainable development.’ In addition, the state has purchase land in North Central Washington with the rational being the protection of important Canadian species. It is incumbent upon us to ensure we are upholding the Constitution and that taxpayer money is being properly spent. I encourage citizens to contact their Legislator and ask them to support House Bills 1164 and 1165,” said Rep David Taylor.
