The hearing took place in Concord NH in the Legislative office building on 5/10/12. NH House Representative Anne Cartwright gives intro testimony on her amendment 2058h to Senate Bill SB 217 2012. Background: NH House Representatives Anne Cartwright introduced an amendment to Senate Bill 217. The amendment upholds Article 1 section 10 of the US constitution. States and there political subdivisions (States, Counties and towns) are barred from having compacts with foreign powers, Congress has not authorized states to work with the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives. I.C.L.E.I -Local Governments for sustainability, is a co-author of United Nations policy Agenda 21. A United Nations policy defined as an action plan of the United Nations conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992. Agenda 21 is a COMPREHENSIVE BLUEPRINT of actions to be taken globally, nationally, and locally by organizations of the UN, government, and major groups in EVERY AREA IN WHICH HUMANS DIRECTLY AFFECT THE ENVIRONMENT. This comprehensive blueprint can only be successful if Land, air, water and energy are tightly controlled. The argument is, controlled by whom. The proponents of the amendment strongly assert that the United Nations and the agreements our Federal Government has with the UN has circumvented our representative constitutional government. Private property is viewed by the UN as unsustainable, that private property causes inequity, that it causes, environmental and social injustice. Other States have introduced similar legislation in Arizona and Alabama to stop the United Nations influence on US and State resources.
