House Appropriations Votes to Eliminate Office of Smart Growth

According to the folks at Smart Growth America, the House Appropriations Committee has passed legislation that would eliminate the EPA's Office of Smart Growth.  You can visit the Committee's website to learn more about the bill.  SGA has a website that allows you to e-mail your congressional representative, if you're so inclined. Presumably this is part of the campaign to defund the administration's Sustainable Communities Initiative.

I've blogged several announcements from the OSG, which co-hosts the annual New Partners for Smart Growth conference, and gives smart growth implementation assistance and grants and awards to local and state governments each year.

The House and the Senate need to stop the growing EPA encroachment that is destroying our economy We need to eliminate completely the UN backed Office of Smart Growth and the Agenda 21 movement. It is destroying our sovereignty and our economy!

Please wake up to what is going on before it is too late!
