The Alabama Legislature is finally taking up a measure that will effectively shut down parts of the United Nation’s Agenda 21 program in Alabama. First introduced by Majority Whip Gerald Dial on April 5, 2012, Senate Bill 477 contains strong language in support of property rights and due process for property owners. This bill passed the Senate last week, but the companion bill (HB 618)  is still stuck in the Alabama House of Representatives.

In effect this legislation would prevent governmental policies that would violate the U.S. and  Alabama Constitutions. Especially the issues surrounding the dissolution of due process of property owners by taking their land for environmental and developmental reasons. The legislation calls out Agenda 21 by name, and restricts all types of contracts with organization that are defined within it.

SYNOPSIS: Under existing law, the state, subject to
certain federal laws or rules, has the right to
develop its environmental and developmental
policies.
This bill would prohibit the State of
Alabama and its political subdivisions from
adopting and developing environmental and
developmental policies that, without due process,
would infringe or restrict the private property
rights of the owner of the property.

A BILL
TO BE ENTITLED
AN ACT

Relating to due process; to prohibit the State of
Alabama and its political subdivisions from adopting and
developing environmental and developmental policies that,
without due process, would infringe or restrict the private
property rights of the owner of the property.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF ALABAMA:
Section 1. (a) As used in this section, “political
subdivisions” means all state, county, incorporated city,
unincorporated city, public local entity, public-private
partnership, and any other public entity of the state, a
county, or city.
(b) The State of Alabama 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 Alabama.
(c) Since the United Nations has accredited and
enlisted numerous non-governmental and inter-governmental
organizations to assist in the implementation of its policies
relative to Agenda 21 around the world, the State of Alabama
and all political subdivisions may not enter into any
agreement, expend any sum of money, or receive funds
contracting services, or giving financial aid to or from those
non-governmental and inter-governmental organizations as
defined in Agenda 21.
Section 2. This act shall become effective on the
first day of the third month following its passage and
approval by the Governor, or its otherwise becoming law.

  1. It is time to take America Back one town, one county and one state at a time. I live in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. We had a horriffic event on 27 April 2011. And, our city mayor and council who are closet liberals posing as Republicans, have used this horriffic event to transform Tuscaloosa into an Agenda 21 city in the guise of Sustainable Development to deprive citizens of their property rights, and are telling them how they can rebuild and in some cases, that they cannot rebuild at all. This is Totalitarianism. Many folks who want to rebuild cannot afford to rebuild under the new guidelines being shoved down their throats, and even the ones who are allowed to rebuild are being charged excessive building permit fees such as $600 for a building permit to rebuild their own homes on their own land and still have to follow the guidelines that the city tells them to use, thus making it impossible for many to rebuild. They are siezing property for Dog Walks and Walking Tracks, Bicycle Routes, etc. in a county that already has 44 parks. This is absolute Tyranny at the Local Level. And, it must be stopped. Most folks cannot afford this government any longer. In days of old, if a person owned a little land, he could build a shack to live in because that is all he could afford. Today, the poor are not allowed to exist except in government housing. This is fascism or communism depending on the term you want to use. The end result is the same. You are not allowed any freedom in how you want to live and in order to abide by the laws, you have to have a lot of cash to be able to abide by all the rules, ordinances, taxes, etc. and if not, you are driven off your land because you can no longer afford to stay there.

  2. The UN can fool your elected officials but can not fool the people. Your elected officials fail to read and fully understand many of the things they vote into law without regard for the people. It is time for the Government to answer to THE PEOPLE, NOT THE PEOPLE ANSWER TO THE GOVERNMENT.

  3. We the 40 MILLION MILITARY in this land, AND YOU ,have sworn to uphold the CONSTITUTION!!! Support H.B.861 We do pay attention to what is going on in our NATION!!!
    GOD bless you, and all that you do to serve us!!
    VICTOR

  4. I was so afraid that this is what would happen in Tuscaloosa and other towns that have natural disasters. You must inform yourself and then inform your local government. If they won’t listen, then vote em out while you can. Agenda 21 sets up “stakeholder” councils that conduct “visioning” sessions meant to give the illusion of public buy-in. These sessions are conducted using the Delphi technique, where any opposition is marginalized. You must learn to break up these meetings. This is not a Democrat or Republican issue.
    Here is the most concise treatment of Agenda 21 that I have found: http://youtu.be/ujuLC682Azg
