TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Three Kansas House members are pushing a resolution opposing a 20-year-old United Nations initiative that encourages nations to adopt environmentally sustainable development.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/JPcqyN ) the House members on Monday joined a spokesman for Americans for Prosperity and several citizens to discuss their opposition to the U.N. initiative called Agenda 21.
Republican House members Greg Smith of Olathe; Forrest Knox of Altoona and Dennis Hedke of Wichita testified that the initiative was supported by radical environmentalists who want to end private property rights.
Agenda 21, which refers to the 21st century, encourages governments to use several methods to support environmentally sustainable development.
The nonbinding U.N. agreement was signed by 178 nations in 1992. Implementation of the agreement is voluntary.
