GOP Hosts Meeting To Address Bills Vetoed by Gov.

More than 60 concerned citizens gathered in Ava last week to participate in a forum to discuss Governor Nixon’s recent vetoes on three bills passed by the Missouri General Assembly. This event was sponsored by the Douglas County Republican Committee.
State Senator Mike Cunningham addressed the gathering and explained how the General Assembly operates during a veto session. Senator Cunningham represents the citizens of Missouri’s 33rd Senate District, which includes the counties of Douglas, Howell, Oregon, Ozark, Ripley, Texas, Webster, and Wright.
Doreen Hannes, co-chair of the Ozark Property Rights Coalition, presented a brief history of UN Agenda 21 and explained how this program would do away with traditional American values, liberty, and property rights. She explained how the passage of SB 265 will prevent the State of Missouri from implementing any portion of Agenda 21 that would violate the Constitutional rights of Missourians.
Dr. John Lilly is President of the Locke and Smith Foundation, an organization that carefully examines Missouri Legislation. He spoke about HB 253 and explained why overriding the veto of “The Broad-Based Tax Relief Act” will be beneficial for Missouri.
Bob Parker, co-chair of the Ozark Property Rights Coalition and former candidate for 8th Congressional District Representative, made a passionate case for passing HB 436. He explained that “The Second Amendment Preservation Act” is a bill designed to protect the Second Amendment rights of Missourians from unconstitutional federal laws.
Everyone in attendance had an opportunity to ask questions and to make comments to explain their views on these topics.
Future forum discussions will be held to look at potential dangers of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) in food and some perceived defects of the “Common Core” curriculum to be imposed upon us.
