AGENDA 21 HEADS UP: DEADLINE SEPT. 20 CHANCE TO STOP FUNDING

There Is a Real Chance to Stop Funding 
for “Sustainable Communities.”

The House of Representatives have cut funding from Obama’s 
Partnership for Sustainable Communities program. The program has been targeted for elimination from the House FY 2012 spending bill.
Defunding Sustainable Development has also come through a Department of Transportation bill, a draft of which completely eliminates funding for what are called TIGER grants, which provides funding for the largest grants through the Partnership for Sustainable Communities program.
This is great news for those of us opposed to Sustainable Development. It means less money and fewer weapons coming out of Washington, DC to enforce this assault on property rights and America’s way of life.
Now the spending bill is moving to the Senate – the danger zone. Sustainablists are planning a major push to get the Senate to replace the appropriations for the Sustainable Communities budget. The American Planning Association (APA) is leading the charge, calling for massive pressure to be put on Senators in what the APA is calling “Planners Day,” set for September 20th.
The APA’s message to the Senators is that the cuts “ignores both our nation’s jobs crisis and the drastic need for infrastructure investment.” In fact, the House action is not only fiscally responsible in a day when the government is completely broke, but it is a lie that the program will help either jobs or infrastructure. The exact opposite is true. Sustainable Development is a jobs killer and it destroys infrastructure – refusing to build roads, tearing down dams and the like.
We can strike a huge blow against Sustainable Development. CONTINUE
