Expect a bill that shelters private property in Florida from takeover by a United Nations-led world government effort, Senate President-designate Don Gaetz said Tuesday.
And expect that bill to receive favorable support.
Appearing on Fort Walton radio station WFTW 1260 AM, Gaetz said he expected Florida lawmakers to introduce and approve a bill similar to Senate Bill 477 that has been approved by the Alabama Legislature.
“I think there is a very good chance that bill will come up,” Gaetz said.
“Personally, I oppose anybody or anything that tramples on the United States sovereignty. And property rights are a pretty strong topic in the Florida Legislature,” Gaetz added.
“We’ve got a very diverse state and a lot of people with different opinions, but when it comes down to the rights of private property I think there will be a strong opportunity to get something through the legislatures. I would hope so.”
The Alabama bill, approved by the state Legislature in May, bars the state of Alabama from developing environmental and developmental policies that take over private property without due process.
The bill was filed with the intent of protecting Alabamians from United Nations Agenda 21.
