For the second time, the Republican-controlled Missouri House has passed an anti-Agenda 21 bill (House Bill 1647) in the name of “property rights.”
From the Kansas City Star
JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri House members have approved legislation barring state or local officials from adopting policies that infringe upon private property rights and are traceable to Agenda 21.
Agenda 21 is a nonbinding resolution adopted in 1992 by the United Nations that encouraged sustainable development. Its title is a reference to the 21st century, and it encourages changes in global consumption, management and conservation practices.
The House approved the measure 99-46 on Monday, moving it to the Senate.
Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed the same legislation last year. The Senate approved a veto override, but the effort fell short of the necessary two-thirds majority in the House.
