Transcript TEXAS CONSTITUTION (continued) Many specific details about judicial qualifications, removal procedure, and administration of the courts are deleted in the new Constitution. The details would either be set by the legislature through law or by the Supreme Court, which is given constitutional authority to provide for "efficient administration of the judicial branch". The only major change in judicial procedure would be that the state would be able to appeal in a criminal case if a court decided that the law involved in the case was unconstitutional. Proposition #3 concerns voter qualifications and elections. The only substantial change would allow persons convicted of felonies to vote after they complete their sentences. Currently, a convicted felon permanently loses her/his right to vote. Proposition #4 would add to the old constitution's education principles that each individual has a right to equal educational opportunity. However, local enrichment programs are specifically allowed. The old dedicated school funds are retained, with some specific details deleted. Since UT and Texas A&M's lobbies were too strong to allow their fund to be deleted, another dedicated fund for all the other state colleges and universities was added. It is to be financed by a property tax of no more than 100 per $100 assessed valuation. Proposition $5> finance, would set up one new, good principle but would also exempt numerous special interest groups from property taxes. The principle would be that the legislature must set uniform standards and procedures for the appraisal of property on the basis of its market value. The property of veterans' organizations, non-profit water supply corporations, persons "determined to be in need of relief because of economic circumstance and either age or disability" could be exempted from property taxes. In addition, farm, ranch, and timber land would be appraised by a separate formula from other kinds of property. The current statutory sales tax exemptions on food, drugs, and agricultural machinery and supplies would be given constitutional status. Finally, a "state debt" could exist, but only if authorized by two-thirds of the legislature and a majority vote of the people. (continued on page 6)
