Texas Constitution Changes? Anendment Election on November 3 2009

10 September 2009 at 10:30:54 AM

Reading public notice in the Glen Rose Reporter Newspaper. There are 11 Propositions to be on the ballot and I can only tell for sure what 2 of them are actually for. Going to list them for now, and come back to it later-if you know WHY these are being proposed or have a good link, please post.

Proposition 1 - HJR 132- military installations and buffer areas

Proposition 2 - HJR 35 taxation of a residence based on its value as a residence and not if it's used for other purposes. Um, why?

Proposition 3 - HJR 36 -provide for uniform standards for ad valorem taxes.

Proposition 4 - HJR 14 estalibh a national research university fund., which would take state revenue for that purpose.

Proposition 5- HJR 35- single appraisal review board for two more more adjoining appraisal entities.

Proposition 6- HJR 116 about selling land to veterans

Proposition 7- HJR 127 Allow an officer or enlisted member of the Texas State Guard or other militia to hold other civil offices.

Proposition 8- HJR 7 - authorize monies for veterans hospitals

Proposition 9- HJR 102 define what is a state owned public beach (bet this is from Galveston).

Proposition 10- HJR 83 Members of a governing board of an emergency services district may serve terms not to exceed 4 years (what is it now?)

Proposition 11- HJR 14 - eminent domain bill. When I read this, it *sort of* looks okay, except it says that the state can take land for removaql of urban blight. Who decides what is urban blight? Is that already codified?
