Here are a couple of things that made me proud of our legislature in Michigan. No mention of Agenda 21 but definite steps in the right direction.
2012 Senate Bill 1276: Restrict setting aside state land for biological diversity
Introduced by Sen. Tom Casperson (R) on September 13, 2012, to prohibit the Department of Natural Resources from designating an area of land specifically for the purpose of achieving biological diversity.
2012 Senate Bill 1238: Revise state land acquisition procedures
Introduced by Sen. Darwin Booher (R) on August 15, 2012, to establish new procedures, criteria and restrictions for the acquisition by the state of property paid for with Natural Resources Trust Fund money, and add two new members to the decision making board who would be appointed by the House Speaker and Senate Majority leader (subject to certain restrictions). Among other things, if land was acquired for transfer to a land conservancy without assurance it would have to be kept open for all types of recreational use.

(REMEMBER THE RIVER RAISIN!)
That truly is wonderful news! Thank you so very much for the report about things in Michigan! Working at state and local levels will truly be the key in days ahead.
