A bill has been introduced to the Washington State Senate that would protect property rights from Agenda 21 and other similar measures.
Senate Bill 5191 (SB5191), introduced by State Senators Don Benton and Jan Angel, would prohibit the state, as well as cities and counties, from adopting and developing environmental and developmental policies that infringe or restrict private property rights without due process.
The bill reads, in part:
The state of Washington and all political subdivisions may not adopt or implement policy recommendations that deliberately or inadvertently infringe or restrict private property rights without due process as may be required by policy recommendations originating in or traceable to Agenda 21, adopted by the United Nations in 1992 at its conference on environment and development, or any other international law or ancillary plan of action that contravenes the Constitution of the United States or the Constitution of the state of Washington.
SB5191 has been referred to referred to the Law and Justice Committee.
If passed, SB5191 will be a big win for Constitutionalists and liberty supporters. Private property rights would be strengthened for people in Washington States, while their state’s political process would be protected from pernicious outside influences. Although Agenda 21 is marketed by its planners as benign and sensible, its effect on American sovereignty could be devastating.
AGENDA 21 OVERVIEW
The United States government officially endorsed Agenda 21 in 1992 when President George H. W. Bush signed on to a treaty with 177 other countries at a large U.N. meeting called the ’Earth Summit’ in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. He triumphed this accomplishment as emblematic of a world coming together to maintain a safe, living environment for present and future generations. However, there is more to Agenda 21 than what these world leaders are willing to let on to the general public.
“In a nutshell, the [Agenda 21] plan calls for governments to take control of all land use and not leave any of the decision making in the hands of private property owners,” The Post-Sustainability Institute, a think-tank designed to rally awareness and action regarding Agenda 21, said on its website.
“[Agenda 21] is a whole life plan. It involves the educational system, the energy market, the transportation system, the governmental system, the health care system, food production, and more. The plan is to restrict your choices, limit your funds, narrow your freedoms, and take away your voice.”
