MO Gov. Nixon veto sustained on UN agreement

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers have sustained the veto of legislation barring state or local officials from adopting policies infringing upon private property rights and traceable to Agenda 21.

   Agenda 21 is a nonbinding resolution adopted in 1992 by the United Nations that encouraged sustainable development. Its title is a reference to the 21st century, and it encourages changes in global consumption, management and conservation practices.

   Senators supported the override 24-6 on Wednesday. It fell short of the needed two-thirds majority in the House, where legislators supported the override 107-53.

   Gov. Jay Nixon said the legislation would require a costly analysis by cities and governmental bodies to determine if a zoning ordinance can be traced to the resolution. Supporters say their concern is infringement of personal property rights without due process.

   The Agenda 21 bill is SB 265.
