Brush up on amendments before Nov. 5

Monday, October 14, 2019 by Tai Moses

Texan voters will have the opportunity on Nov. 5 to approve – or not – 10 new amendments to the state constitution. To help you be as informed as possible before you go to the polls, the League of Women Voters of Texas has provided an invaluable service by researching each amendment and offering an impartial summary of pros and cons to help you make up your mind. As Texas League President Grace Chimene said in a press release, “You decide which of the 10 proposed amendments will become part of the Texas Constitution. Given the significance of the issues and relative permanence of constitutional amendments, voters need to understand each of the propositions to cast an informed vote.” The amendment topics range from public school funding and rules for municipal court judges to tax exemptions for disaster areas and guidelines for the retirement of police dogs and horses. You can find the League’s Voters Guide on the LWVTX website.
