Representative Stickland Files Unfunded Mandate Repeal

Austin, TX - Today (January 28, 2019), State Representative Jonathan Stickland (Bedford) filed HB 1133. This bill would allow local ISDs a campus-wide classroom average of 22 students, instead of requiring 22 students per class, repealing a burdensome and unfunded mandate.

Representative Stickland commented, "We've got to allow our local ISDs to use dollars and resources as they see fit. Placing unfunded mandates on ISDs ties the hands of our schools and sends the message that legislators in Austin know how to use their resources better than they do."

We must return to trusting our local educators on the best way to use their resources. That is why we have filed HB 1133.

Control the Food - Control the People

Some of the current bills in Congress could be some of the most dangerous bills in the history of the US Congress. The upcoming lame-duck session will likely be a last ditch effort to push some of these bills through Congress to further advance a left-wing agenda. Three of the most dangerous bills in Congress are Senate Bill S.510 the Food Safety Modernization Act, Senate Bill SB 787 the Clean Water Restoration Act, and HR 5101 the Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act of 2010. These bills in Congress, if passed, could put the United State government in control of the entire food and water supply in America.

Bills in Congress - S.510

Senate Bill S.510, the Food Safety Modernization Act, could make it illegal to grow, share, trade, or sell home-grown food. World renowned microbiologist, human rights activist, and Canada Health whistle blower, Dr. Shiv Chopra said of the bill, “If accepted [S.510] would preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one’s choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God.”


Steve Miller of Clarkston, Georgia is currently in the process of being fined $5,000 for "growing too many vegetables". In January of this year, DeKalb County Code Enforcement officers cited Miller for growing too many vegetables and having unpermitted workers on his property. If bill S.510 passes, this will become the norm instead of the exception.

SB 787 - The Clean Water Restoration Act

The basis of this legislation is to expand the authority of the Corps of Engineers to control the land that is “adjacent to, near, is affected by, or affects” any body of water in the United States. The definition of “waters” of the bill will include even “dry desert potholes” and any location that has water, or might have water even for a temporary period of time. This has the potential to be one of the most destructive bills in the history of Congress regarding property rights. Under the authority of this bill, the Corps of Engineers could require a permit even to mow residential lawns! Advocates of the bill claim that these statements are ridiculous because the “agency would never attempt such local control.” Does anyone believe that once a government agency has been granted “expanded authority” that they will choose not to exercise that authority?

HR 5101 – The Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act of 2010

This legislation creates a program to accumulate data pertaining to wildlife migratory patterns thus establishing “corridors” that would minimize human activity within these corridors. This means no hunting, no fishing, no camping, or any other activity within these corridors. The federal government already owns 30% of the land in the United States, but apparently that is not enough for this government. Why?


Government Food Control
Government's Idea of "Food Control"
Will history repeat itself?

The combination of these three pieces of legislation would grant government bureaucrats control of the farming industry, the United States water supply, and even the food that could be obtained through hunting and fishing. Viewed separately, these proposals may be spun as “interest of public safety”, “interest of environmental concern”, and “wildlife preservation”, but when viewed collectively, this is an obvious attempt by the government to control the people. If the government is allowed to have total control of the food and water supply, they would by default have total control of the citizens of the US. Control the food, control the people. This certainly tramples on certain “unalienable rights” endowed to us by our CREATOR, among them Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. If you don’t have food, you don’t have life. If you have to rely on the government for food, you don’t have liberty. I don’t know for sure “yet”, so I can only assume that it would be rather difficult to pursue happiness while standing in government bread lines.
