The Constitutional amendments

In addition to all of the local races that will be on your ballot next month, there are ten Constitutional amendments up for ratification. Unlike some previous years, and somewhat surprisingly given the divisive and ideological nature of the session, there are no particularly high profile or controversial measures on the ballot. (Proposition 2, which authorizes the Texas Water Development Board to lend $6 billion via a bond fund dedicated to building and fixing water infrastructure, drawn btoh support and opposition.) If you want to know more about the referenda, and this includes me as I’ve spent approximately zero time thinking about them, State Sen. Kirk Watson and State Rep. Scott Hochberg have you covered. This Chron story has more detailed information about Props 2 and 8, both of which relate to water. Happy reading!
