Topeka A Kansas legislative committee has introduced a resolution aimed at the 20-year-old United Nations Agenda 21, a policy that states its purpose as seeking global cooperation to improve the environment and reduce economic disparities between countries.
The House Federal and State Affairs Committee on Monday will hold a hearing on House Resolution 6032, which condemns the "destructive and insidious nature of United Nations Agenda 21."
The resolution states that Agenda 21 is a radical plan that views as destructive "the American way of life of private property ownership, single family homes, private car ownership, individual travel choices and privately owned farms." The purpose of the resolution is to expose to public policymakers the "dangerous intent" of Agenda 21.
The Republican National Committee and Kansas Republican Party Central Committee have approved similar resolutions. Opposition to Agenda 21 has also been organized by Americans for Prosperity.
Agenda 21 came out of discussions on "sustainable development" at the U.N. Conference of Environment and Development in 1992.
