In addition to numerous local candidates, registered voters in Texas can also weigh in on 10 amendments to the state’s constitution on the Nov. 5 joint election ballot. If approved, the amendments, or propositions, would take effect Nov. 6.

Proposition 8 would create the Flood Infrastructure Resiliency Fund as part of Senate Bill 7, which was authored by Sen. Brandon Creighton, R-Conroe. Money for the new fund would be appropriated from the state’s Rainy Day Fund.

The fund would provide shorter-term funding for current drainage, flood mitigation and flood control projects, according to the Texas secretary of state’s website.

Proposition 10 would allow a no-cost transfer of ownership for K-9 law enforcement officers, while Proposition 6 would allocate more money to Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas.
