Propositions on ballot
Registered voters in Texas can also weigh in on 10 constitutional amendments on the Nov. 5 ballot, according to the Texas secretary of state’s website. The propositions range from flood infrastructure funding to additional funds for cancer research.
Proposition 8, for example, would create the Flood Infrastructure Resiliency Fund as part of Senate Bill 7, which was authored by Sen. Brandon Creighton, R-Conroe. The fund would be managed by the Texas Water Development Board, and it would provide shorter-term funding for current drainage, flood mitigation and flood control projects.
