Washington Co. legislator files bills to block U.N. from Tenn.

Hank Hayes • Feb 10, 2013 at 12:09 PM

Republican James “Micah” Van Huss promised to protect Tennessee from the United Nations when he ran for state representative in 2012.

Van Huss made that pledge at a tea party event in Kingsport last October and specifically spoke out against Agenda 21, a 20-year- old United Nations initiative advocating sustainable development.

The 34-year-old military veteran, who now serves House District 6 in Washington County, has filed two bills with intentions of keeping the United Nations out of the state.
