Agenda 21 Being Challenged By New Bill In SC Legislature

On April 30, 2013 several South Carolina Senators stepped up to the plate for South Carolinians and sponsored Senate Bill 661.

Senate Bill 661 is to amend Title 44 of the 1976 Code, relating to Health, to enact the "AGENDA 21 PROTECTION ACT.

Senators Shane Martin of Spartanburg (District 13), Kevin Bryant of Anderson (District 3), Lee Bright of Spartanburg (District 12), and Larry Grooms of Berkley (District 37) have sponsored this bill.

Many of us know how various non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are influencing our State, County and Municipal governments by "vision programs and green agendas including:

• Neglect of private property rights by supporting zoning,

• Eminent domain

• Conservation easements

• Environmental issues

• Endangered species

These programs, organizations, and "movements" are supporters of the United Nations program known as Agenda 21

If you have heard of organizations who support Sustainable Development, Smart Growth, and Agenda 21, these organizations are supporting the United Nations Agenda 21 program.

Some of the organizations who are behind Agenda 21 in Pickens and Oconee Counties are Upstate Forever, Ten at the Top, Friends of Lake Keowee Society (FOLKS), Pickens County Vision 2025 and Oconee Alliance. All of these NGOs receive either County funding, Federal funding or both. They also leach local business of advertising dollars that could be supporting communities directly.

Senate Bill 661 states that …
"… no political subdivision of this State may enter into any agreement, expend or receive funds, contract for service, or provide financial aid to or from those non-governmental and inter-governmental organizations as defined in Agenda 21 accredited and enlisted by the United Nations to assist in the implementation of its policies relative to Agenda 21 around the world".
The definition of "political subdivision" above means any Municipality, City, County, State, Public body, Public-private partnership, and any other governmental body of this State.

If you want to keep the United Nations out of South Carolina, then you are going to have to help in this cause!

The Bill was introduced at the last minute before the legislature adjourned, but there is still a possibility that it may be re-introduced in January of 2014 when the legislature reconvenes. We will have several months to round up support for this proposed legislation, put pressure on our elected officials in the Statehouse, and inform the citizens across the state about the dangers of Agenda 21.

Please review the proposed Senate Bill 661:

Please be sure to forward this information to everyone you know across the State of South Carolina and get the word out.

Agenda 21 needs to be stopped in South Carolina!
