Transcript TEXAS CONSTITUTION (continued) Proposition $6, local government, would retain the current county government structures, but would allow a county's voters to create, abolish, or combine county offices. Rather than list specific special districts, the new constitution has a general statement giving the legislature the authority to set up special districts. A new detail would be a maximum property tax rate for cities, towns, and counties for purposes other than debt service. That tax rate could not exceed $2 per $100 assessed valuation for cities and towns, and could not exceed $1,25 per $100 valuation for counties. Proposition #7» general provisions, retains several old parts (slightly rewritten) and adds some new principles. Established as state policies would be protection of the environment, public ownership of beaches, access to adequate, comprehensive health care for every resident, and a prohibition against discrimination against handicapped persons. Lotteries would continue to be prohibited, but bingo or raffles for nonprofit charitable organizations would now be allowed. Of special interest to feminists would be a slight change in the definition of community and separate property of married couples. The old constitution defines such property in terms of the wife; the new constitution uses the more general term "spouse". Also written into this section of the new constitution is a provision allowing the removal of surface water from its river basin of origin if it is replaced by out-of-state water or is on a temporary basis. This would allow East Texas water to be pumped to West Texas, a plan that has been turned down by the voters of Texas in the past. Proposition //8 essentially retains the old method of amending the constitution. The only real change is that the legislature would be required to ask voters if they wanted a constitutional convention at least once every 30 years. In my opinion, most of the changes would be improvements over the old constitution. However, there are some bad sections intermingled with the good. I am going to vote for every proposition EXCEPT #5> the Finance proposition. Be sure to express your feelings about these eight propositions by voting on November 4. Betty A. Barnes
