AUSTIN (Nexstar) — Texans will have an opportunity to make changes to the Texas Constitution in November, as state elections officials announce the order of the ballot proposals.
Deputy Secretary of State Joe Esparza drew the ballot order for the proposed amendments Thursday afternoon.
Lawmakers pass bills to change state law, but in order to make changes to the Texas Constitution, a two-thirds supermajority is required in the House and Senate — and then voters in the state — need to approve the proposals.
The eight measures will appear on the November 2 ballot.
Proposition 1: A plan to allow professional sports team charitable foundations of organizations sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association or the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association to conduct raffles at rodeo venues also needs voter approval to pass.
