Good News from the Ozarks

From Karen Bracken:

This is a HUGE success story in our battle against Agenda 21.  What citizens can do when they stick together.  This effort would have put 17.8 million acres of land between Arkansas and Missouri in the hands of the government.  PLEASE BE SURE TO SHARE!!!
Seeking to quell a public backlash, the U.S. Department of the Interior dropped the White River [Watershed National Blueway designation] on Wednesday from a new federal program that recognizes conservation and recreation efforts along waterways.”    Click here for the rest of the ABC News article “Feds Rescind White River’s Blueway Designation”.
U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) issued this response:
“The Obama Administration’s attempt to establish a new federal designation without the approval of Congress or public input is absolutely unacceptable.  The stakeholders and community members deserve more transparency from their government.  I’m pleased the Obama Administration has withdrawn this designation.”

U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-Ark.) issued this response:
“We all agree that we should work to protect our waterways, but a new federal Blueway program is not necessary to improve the cooperation of federal and state agencies on the management of the White River.  This designation occurred without a formal process – no public comment, lack of transparency from the federal government, and without the broad support of Arkansans.  We are happy to see that Secretary Jewell reviewed the program and heard the concerns of our citizens."
