Transportation amendment will appear as Proposition 1 on the ballot
AUSTIN, August 21, 2014 - Today Texas Secretary of State Nandita Berry announced that a proposed amendment to the Texas Constitution related to transportation will appear on the November 4 ballot as Proposition 1. The announcement follows Governor Rick Perry’s proclamation that the constitutional amendment will appear on the November 4 ballot, as specified by the Legislature.
Proposition 1, as it is worded on the ballot, provides for the use and dedication of certain money transferred to the state highway fund to assist in the completion of transportation construction, maintenance, and rehabilitation projects, not to include toll roads. The enabling legislation for the constitutional amendment (SJR 1) was approved during the 83rd Legislature, third called session.
“I want to ensure that Texas voters are prepared and aware of what will be on the ballot this November,” Secretary Berry said. “Constitutional amendments are not usually on even-year ballots, but this election is an exception.”
Secretary Berry also encouraged Texans to check now to make sure they have the required photo ID if they plan to vote in person.
To cast a ballot in person, registered voters need to present one of the following approved forms of photo ID:
