Early voting for the Nov. 5 election has started and runs until November 1. Every Texas voter will have 10 opportunities to change the state’s constitution on their ballot.
MetroTex has endorsed the following three propositions because of their benefits for real estate consumers and property owners.
1) State of Texas Proposition 2: Help with water infrastructure
This amendment allows the Texas Water Development Board to sell bonds. Our association supports Prop 2 because it’s critical for Texans to have access to water that meets state standards.
2) State of Texas Proposition 3: Property tax exemption
This amendment provides a temporary property tax exemption for property owners in areas declared disasters by the governor. Texas REALTORS® strongly supported the legislation that created this ballot measure to help property owners.
3) State of Texas Proposition 8: Flood protection funding
This proposition creates a Flood Infrastructure Fund to develop flood mitigation infrastructure, which will help communities better withstand future flood events. Our association supports Prop 8 because it would create a more resilient Texas in preparation for future flooding.
