First, in Knoxville, TN a plan is being considered to charge a fee to property owners for rainwater runoff – meaning you pay a tax when it rains. This scheme has been enforced in Houston, TX where the city annually scoops up more than $400,000.

The excuse is that rain water runoff from private property pollutes streams. Rain is natural and this is nothing more than another environmental con to grab more of your hard earned money.

They call it a fee rather than a tax in order to snare non-profit entities like schools and churches. Some churches in South Carolina pay an annual rain runoff fee of as much as $2,600.

Agenda-21 is on the move in Tennessee! Sound good to you in Chattanooga??????? Coming your way . . . if not already in place. (Sound good for TN, AL, GA?)

Second, Maryland Governor Richard O’Malley is forcing what he calls “Plan Maryland” through Executive Action rather than through the state Legislature. That means no votes from representatives of the people.

Plan Maryland will lock away 400,000 acres of Maryland land – blocking any development over the next 20 years. The scheme shifts control of land use from local government to dictates by unelected state bureaucrats. (Sound good for TN, AL, GA?)

Worse, O’Malley’s plan will punish any county that doesn’t comply by withholding state funding. It will also triple sewer “flush” taxes on property tax bills -- a tax on toilet flushes. (Sound good for TN, AL, GA?)

Moreover, he wants to ban most septic tanks – a move that will destroy the ability to live in rural areas. (Sound good for TN, AL, GA?)

Agenda 21 is on the move in Maryland.
