(The Center Square) – Texas Voters Approve 13 of 14 Constitutional Amendments on the Ballot.
In unofficial results published by the Secretary of State’s Office, Texas voters have overwhelmingly approved all but one of the 14 constitutional amendments on the ballot. With 98% of the counties reporting and more than half of polling locations having reported, it appears that all amendments have been accepted, with the sole exception being Proposition 13, which aimed to raise the mandatory retirement age for state justices and judges.
Among the most impactful amendments for taxpayers that have received approval are Amendments 3, 4, and 9. These amendments establish a permanent ban on a wealth tax, introduce property tax reform measures, and enhance pensions for retired teachers.
