Arkansas Legislators MUST Hold State & Local Agencies Accountable

by Secure Arkansas: Arkansas state and local government agencies have NO accountability to the people of Arkansas. It's up to the Arkansas legislators to keep the agencies in line and cut their appropriations.

All state and local government agencies must pull their support for all "Sustainable Development" (United Nations Agenda 21) projects or lose all their Arkansas legislative appropriation funding. These government agencies are wasting large amounts of money and resources as well as going against the will of the people. There is no accountability regarding spending or the direction these government agencies are going. It appears that the agencies are getting whatever amount of money they request in the appropriation bills. In many of the appropriation bills, there are funds for land acquisition. Why are the taxpayers of Arkansas providing tax money to acquire private property? This is insane. HB2015 would have helped with agency oversight, but the bill died in the House Committee on State Agencies and Governmental Affairs, 89th General Assembly, Regular Session 2013.

If the state and local government agencies will not pull their support of Sustainable Development (U.N. Agenda 21), it's up to the Arkansas legislators to cut off all funding immediately. Also, there should be NO appropriation funds made available for private property land acquisition.

In the case of the White River Watershed National Blueway, there was NO input requested from the land owners, local government, county government, or state government prior to the attempted federal land grab via the White River Watershed National Blueway. The state and local government agencies that went against the will of the people and signed the White River Watershed Nation Blueway nomination were: the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, Arkansas Forestry Commission, Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission, Arkansas Waterway Association, City of Augusta, AR and the City of Clarendon, AR. There must be some oversight from our Arkansas legislators to control these government agencies that have gone against the will of the people. Again, HB2015 would have helped with agency oversight, but the bill died in the House Committee on State Agencies and Governmental Affairs, 89th General Assembly, Regular Session, 2013.

Arkansas legislators have the ability to cut or eliminate the money in the appropriation bills to the various state and local agencies to get their attention.

Some of the waste can be seen first hand by reviewing the amount of money in the appropriation bills below.

Arkansas Planning and Development Districts
Arkansas is divided into 8 Planning and Development Districts. Each planning district covers six to twelve Arkansas counties which are bound together by common economic problems and opportunities. The planning districts provide many services including grant writing and administration for economic development projects in Arkansas. All 8 Planning and Development Districts are incorporated with the Arkansas Secretary of State as Not-For-Profit.

Contact information for the 8 Planning and Development Districts:
Again, there is no oversight with any of the appropriations going to the Arkansas Planning and Development Districts.

Arkansas Planning and Development Appropriation Bills See Article for the bills and link. However, the Total Appropriations for the 8 Arkansas Planning and Development Districts are $489,600,000. That's almost 500 MILLION DOLLARS! Where is all this money going?
