Issues

UN Agenda 21

On January 22, 2013, Kintner introduced LB482, which would prevent the state from "adopting policy recommendations that infringe on private property rights without due process as prescribed." The bill comes in response to Agenda 21, a non-binding United Nations environmental land-use treaty which conservatives argue diminishes national and state sovereignty, as well as property rights. Kintner also expressed practical opposition to Agenda 21, saying that plans for urban "green space" were not optimal, and that the program would be "catastrophic to the state" by converting farmland to wilderness. Fellow legislator Ernie Chambers decried the bill as being "in the category of those people who wear tin-foil hats for protection from I don't know what," as well as "monkey-see, monkey do legislation," noting similar legislation in other states. Another legislator, Danielle Conrad, said: "Those concerned about these issues demonstrate a fundamental misunderstanding of our system of government and a clear disregard for well-established constitutional protections for private property rights."[1]
