About HB 1412
House Bill 1412 would prohibit any city, town or county from adopting or implementing policy recommendations established by the United Nations' Agenda 21 sustainable development action plan. Agenda 21 is a nonbinding, voluntarily implemented action plan regarding sustainable development. HB 1412 also would prohibit the state from contracting with or exchanging funds with a nongovernmental or intergovernmental organization accredited by the U.N. The House eventually voted 67-17, mostly along party lines, to pass the bill. It was headed to the Senate, but Sen. Cliff Branan said Tuesday that his committee would not take up HB 1412 at its next meeting Thursday.
