At that hearing, attorney Karen Budd-Falen gave her testimony, which is of inestimable value that will provide guidance and defense for us for years to come. PLEASE read this Wyoming attorney’s testimony as thoroughly and as soon as possible. View it here.
If you can, please attend the follow-up meeting to the D.C. hearing. That hearing will be held in West Plains, Missouri, on Monday, July 29, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. in the Theater of the West Plains Civic Center, 110 St. Louis St.
Information will be shared regarding how the National Blueways System designation was initially imposed on the White River watershed in Missouri and Arkansas and how future designations can be prevented. The hearing will be titled: “Stopping Federal Land and Water Grabs: Protecting Property Rights from Washington, DC Edicts”. It will be open to the public on a first come, first serve seating basis, and is being sponsored by the Missouri congressional delegation. Click here for more information about the Missouri hearing. We appreciate the Missouri diligence in pursuing this matter to the end that was exposed by Secure Arkansas, PCRNews, and Missourians Against Agenda 21, three organizations who prompted the passage of many anti-Blueway resolutions by affected counties in Arkansas and Missouri. We also appreciate the initial diligence of Senators Boozman, Blunt, other Arkansas & Missouri congressmen in obtaining a hold on the matter until pertinent questions were answered, which prompted a “withdrawal” from the Department of Interior. However, we need to keep contacting our U.S. Senators and Representatives until official and complete answers are given to all those questions. You can read that letter from Senator Boozman, etc, and obtain contact information on the Secure Arkansas and Secure The Republic websites at: SecureArkansas.com andSecureTheRepublic.com.
There have been many people in both states who have labored tirelessly to halt this travesty. Thank them and help them when you have an opportunity to do so. Most of all, be encouraged to do your part to KNOW THE WHOLE TRUTH and act accordingly. (If your county was one of the few who were persuaded to pass an alternative resolution – one which could possibly be a dangerous endorsement of watershed (regional) governance – find out what you can do to reverse it for your county, which of course would also affect you and your property.)
Thanks, as always, for your support!
