To amend chapter 1, RSMo, by adding thereto one new section relating to prohibition
on certain policies that infringe on private property rights.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Chapter 1, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new
2 section, to be known as section 1.370, to read as follows:
1.370. 1. As used in this section, “political subdivision” means any
2 state, county, incorporated city, unincorporated city, public local
3 entity, public-private partnership, and any other public entity of the
4 state, a county, or city.
5 2. Neither the state of Missouri nor any political subdivision
6 shall adopt or implement policy recommendations that deliberately or
7 inadvertently infringe or restrict private property rights without due
8 process, as may be required by policy recommendations originating in,
9 or traceable to Agenda 21, adopted by the United Nations in 1992 at its
10 Conference on Environment and Development or any other
11 international law or ancillary plan of action that contravenes the
12 Constitution of the United States or the Missouri Constitution.
13 3. Since the United Nations has accredited and enlisted
14 numerous nongovernmental and intergovernmental organizations to
15 assist in the implementation of its policies relative to Agenda 21 around
16 the world, the state of Missouri and all political subdivisions are
17 prohibited from entering into any agreement with, expending any sum
SB 265 2
18 of money for, receiving funds from, contracting services from, or giving
19 financial aid to those nongovernmental and intergovernmental
20 organizations as defined in Agenda 21.
