Connecticut's Environmental Right Amendment - We Have Questions
Connecticut legislators have introduced an environmental rights amendment, proposing new “inherent, inalienable, and indefeasible” rights to the state constitution. The proposed amendment states that each Connecticut resident shall have the “individual right to clean and healthy air, water, soil and environment; a stable climate; and self-sustaining ecosystems,” with the justification the ‘rights’ are for the safety and general welfare of the public.
The amendment is incredibly vague, leaving room for the heavy hand of government to implement laws and regulations that dictate how you spend your money and resources. We the people need to force legislators to answer our questions and get specific about what this amendment is and how it will be used before it’s too late.
