The most interesting debate of Monday night’s House session was over a bill to extend the Local Food Advisory Council. Some GOP members say it’s part of a UN plot to subvert US sovereignty.
The measure, Senate Bill 491, simply extends the Local Food Advisory Council’s mandate for three years. It has the support of Republican Commissioner of Agriculture Steve Troxler.
Nonetheless, two GOP House members argued it’s part of a United Nations conspiracy, because the board’s charter includes the term “sustainable.”
Rep. Glen Bradley tried to amend the bill to remove the word from the panel’s mission. He said the term “sustainable” is government doublespeak, intended to ”lull the public into complacency.”
Bradley warned his colleagues that “sustainability” is part of the UN’s Agenda 21.
The following information is from an email that I have received from more than one source:
Here are the Republicans who voted with Democrats to defeat Rep. Bradley’s amendment to strip pro-Agenda 21 language from the Food Advisory Council’s charter. They joined with Joe Hackney to provide the swing vote; most Republicans voted with Bradley and AGAINST Agenda 21. Clearly, the below Reps agree with the Southern Poverty Law Center , which claims that Agenda 21 doesn’t exist, and is just an “anti-government conspiracy theory.”
Remember them well, as they all clearly need to be replaced at their next election.

The comment below from Rep. Pittman brings out some good points. I agree that we do not have access to all of the information concerning this matter. The record stands on who voted against this legislation. Whether this will impact their re-election is up to the people and the information that they have in the open.
