    A public hearing will take place tomorrow regarding Senate Joint Resolution No. 193, which proposes an amendment to the State Constitution that would give the state control of pretty much all environmental rights. The language is as follows:

    "Each person shall have an individual right to clean and healthy air, water, soil, ecosystems and environment and a safe and stable climate for the benefit of public health, safety and the general welfare. The state shall not infringe upon these rights and shall protect these rights equitably for all people regardless of race, ethnicity, tribal affiliation, gender, socioeconomic status or geography. The state shall serve as trustee of all of the natural resources of this state, including its waters, air, flora, fauna, soils, and climate, and shall conserve, protect, and maintain these resources for the benefit of all people, including present and future generations. Any funds supporting the state in its obligations as trustee as stated in this section shall not be diverted for nontrust purposes. The rights stated in this section are equivalent to all other inalienable rights and may be directly invoked and enforced by the residents of this state."

    This proposed one paragraph addition to the State Constitution has Connecticut residents up in arms.

    One concerned resident, Nick Postovoit, said of S.J. 193, "this the most egregious bill that I have ever seen promoted under the pretense for the greater good. It is a power grab that would literally make the state king of our land, water, and air, and make us serfs."

    Postovoit argued that the ramifications of this bill would allow the state to have untold power over your property and the use thereof. He cautioned this resolution could lead to more mandates regarding fossil fuels, land and water usage, and more.

    He also said, "Oh, and let's not forget the state’s record for land use of the Norwich State Hospital property which they sold for a dollar leaving the new owner responsible for the removal of all hazardous waste."

    Postovoit was referring to when the town of Preston, CT, purchased 390 acres of the Norwich State Hospital property from the state for $1 on March 12, 2009. In 2005, the Department of Public Works (DPW) proposed selling 419 acres of the campus to Preston, and 61 acres to Norwich, for $1 each. The agreement also requires the Mohegan Tribe to pay $11 million to acquire the property, but they can recoup some expenses if they meet certain benchmarks.

    Jennifer Damon said that the proposed resolution violated God’s law.

    "The Tenth Commandment 'THOU SHALT NOT COVET THY NEIGHBOR'S GOODS.' It commands respect for the rights of others and FORBIDS the desire to take, to keep, or damage the property of others. God gave us all of nature and it’s resources. We do not need the Government to serve as a trustee to maintain God’s nature. This government has confused itself, projecting itself as some worshipful thing and forgot that it’s establishment and only purpose is to serve We The People in this Republic in a civil government," wrote Damon.

    Then she offered a reminder from the Preamble to the State Constitution to further illustrate her point: 

    The People of Connecticut acknowledging with gratitude, the good providence of God, in having permitted them to enjoy a free government; do, in order more effectually to define, secure, and perpetuate the liberties, rights and privileges which they have derived from their ancestors; hereby, after a careful consideration and revision, ordain and establish the following constitution and form of civil government. 

    Damon pointed out other potential violations of the state constitution potentially created by this resolution, including:

    SEC. 1. All men when they form a social compact, are equal in rights; and no man or set of men are entitled to exclusive public emoluments or privileges from the community. 

    SEC. 2. All political power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their benefit; and they have at all times an undeniable and indefeasible right to alter their form of government in such manner as they may think expedient. 

    SEC. 18. No hereditary emoluments, privileges or honors, shall ever be granted, or conferred in this state. 

    Another concerned resident, who goes by the handle "Patriot Professor" on social media, argued that this resolution would allow the state "to usher in the WHO pandemic treaty by creating a climate emergency" quite literally the last thing that Connecticut residents need after all of the abuses of government power that have been suffered in the name of covid.

    The state wants to control the water, air, plants and soil on my property, and this is supposed to be for the benefit ALL people, including future generations? Surely nothing can go wrong with this plan.
