The Agenda 21 malarky that emerged from a meeting of Republican legislators in Georgia--reported by Huffington Post and other venues--was no stranger to the Minnesota legislature during the to years in which Republicans held the majority.
As Bluestem noted last summer in Missing in Minnpost Part II: Parry is co-sponsor of SF2117, establishing the Legislative Commission on United Nations Agenda 21, anti-Agenda 21 legislation had been introduced in Minnesota:
On a friend's Facebook post of the MinnPost article, retiring state senator and champion of sanity Linda Higgins reminded readers of SF 2117, which passed out of Mike Parry's State Government Innovation and Veterans committee.
Not to be left behind in this rapture or the struggle for endorsement over Quist, Mike Parry is also a co-sponsor of the legislation that establishes a "Legislative Commission on United Nations Agenda 21."
Dave Brown, David Thompson and Al DeKruif are the other sponsors, while my dear friend Mary Franson is the chief author in the Minnesota House, with Sondra Erickson getting her back on HF2558.
While Parry and DeKruif are gone from the legislature, all of the other sponsors of the legislation remain--for the moment, as arecount could possibly replace one-vote wonder Mary Franson with Bob Cunniff.
Moreover, Cindy Pugh played host to Agenda 21 fantasies in Chanhassen as head of the SW Metro Tea Party. She was just elected to the Minnesota House 33B seat in a landslide.
Will she and other minority back benchers throw a new bill in the hopper as a sop to the base that brung them? Or will Minority Leader and lab-lover Kurt Daudt be able to convince his incredible-shrinking caucus that that dog won't hunt?
