Bill threatens ecosystems, an integral aspect of life, especially in rural regions

Rural scenery is calming for the soul and mind. They are important for attracting tourists and keeping rural communities and their neighbors happy. We have a healthy ecosystem, as evidenced by the stunning views. The ecosystems may be as small as your backyard, or as large and diverse as the ocean. It is land, water, and air.

Farmer and rancher have a special relationship with the ecosystem that supports their wellbeing. They are aware of the importance and value of the environmental connection. Healthy connections lead to healthy farms and thriving rural towns that are the foundation of resilience in the food system.

It is especially alarming that Missouri Rep. Adam Schnelting filed HB 1463 for 2022 legislative session. It states that no person or organization shall have standing to sue, or intervene in civil actions on behalf of nature and the ecosystem. What does this mean? It means that your neighbor can pollute your land, water, and air and cannot be sued. They found a clever way to misname this bill: “Protection of Missouri Farms and Private Property Act.”This is one way to trick people into believing it’s a good idea. Think about it. There will not be one person or business held responsible.
