A new rule from the Biden administration implements a major part of the United Nation’s “Agenda 21” plan by withdrawing large parts of the United States from economic development.
U.S. Senators Mike Rounds (R-S.D.), John Hoeven (R-N.D.), Steve Daines (R-Mont.) and 13 of their Senate colleagues sent a letter demanding the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) withdraw its proposed Public Lands Rule, which places lands off-limits to most human uses.
Such “de-development” and “re-wilding” are major components of Agenda 21, which claims to promote “sustainable development” by placing most of the United States off-limits to human use.
“The senators stressed the negative impact the proposal would have on western states, including South Dakota, North Dakota, and Montana, as the rule would undermine the multiple-use requirements established by Congress and lock away taxpayer-owned lands from activities that are essential to local economies, including grazing, energy development, and tourism,” a statement from Rounds reads.
Rounds, Hoeven and Daines also called out BLM for attempting to limit public input on the scheme. Senators asked the agenda “to hold in-person public meetings in every western state to make certain constituents have an adequate opportunity to provide feedback on the rule.”
“The proposal creates a framework for ‘conservation leases’ without authorization from Congress,” wrote the senators. “The proposal specifically notes that ‘BLM shall not authorize any other uses of the leased land’ that it determines are ‘inconsistent’ with this new framework, thereby interrupting the successful balance of other responsible uses from hunting and grazing, to energy development and recreation.”
“This new leasing regime opens the door for a new, non-competitive process designed to lock away parcels of land, with no limits to size, for a period of 10 or more years. It’s clear that anti-grazing and anti-development organizations would abuse this tool to attempt to halt ranching and block access to our nation’s abundant energy reserves located on public lands,” they add.
“BLM’s proposed Public Lands Rule is an effort to empower special interests that have long opposed BLM’s statutory mandate by prioritizing non-development over the principles of multiple use and sustained yield. Taking large parcels of land out of BLM’s well-established multiple-use mandate would cause significant harm to many western states and negatively impact the livelihoods of ranchers, energy producers, and many others that depend on access to federal lands. As such, the proposal should be withdrawn immediately,” the letter reads.
In addition to Rounds, Hoeven, and Daines, the letter was signed by Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Ranking Member John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) and Senators James Risch (R-Idaho), Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.), James Lankford (R-Okla.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.), Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska), Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.), Deb Fischer (R-Neb.), Mitt Romney (R-Utah), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Roger Marshall (R-Kan
Under the ClowN EL BUFFOON”O” BIDEN WE ARE IN VERY, VERY DEEP SEWAGE.
This stinks and reminds me of what Bill Clinton did to UTAH—Bill was such a coward when he made law concerning “clean coal” being “locked up” the same way by INTERNATIONALISTS ( communists?) He stood in an adjacent State and pointed at the land to do this evil. Worse in some ways then the CHINA GATE He was involved in . Ron Brown died because of China Gate.
