State Ban on UN Agenda 21 Clears Arizona Senate (The New American, March 27, 2013):

Under immense pressure from grassroots activists across the political spectrum, lawmakers in the Arizona Senate approved legislation last week that would ban the controversial United Nations “sustainable development” scheme known as UN Agenda 21 within the state.

Peterson’s legislation is similar to a state bill to ban Agenda 21 that passed the state House earlier this year before failing in the Senate.

“It’s an important topic,” Peterson told HuffPost. “Agenda 21 is a dangerous program to get into. It looks cushy because of the special funding. They take over and citizens lose their rights.”
