amendments to be voted on Nov 2 By ROSE MARIE EASH Staff Writer On Nov 2 voterswill be asked to consider 16 Texas constitutional amendments The follow ing are brief explanations of the amendments Amendment 1 authorizes the legislature to issue S50 million in bonds to aid in the startup costs for historically underutilized businesses those defined by Government Code as owned by one or more persons who arc socially disadvan taged because of their identification as members of certain groups including AfricanAmericans Native Americans Asian PacificAmericans His panic Americans and Supporters say this will encourage minority business development and correct historic injus tices Those opposed say it will give unfair advan tage to minorities and women and it is unfair to ask voters to approve without the specifics on how the bond proceeds would be used Amendment 2 authorizes the legislature to exempt from property taxation property used constructed acquired or installed wholly or part ly to meet federal state of local regulations for the prevention monitoring control or reduction of air water or land pollution Early voting under way in Comal County Early voting can be done at the Comal Coun ty Clerks Office on the 1st Floor Room 106 Registered voters may cast their ballots from 8 to Monday through Friday through Oct 29 Temporary early voting polls arc scheduled for the following locations and times Canyon Lake Action Center Monday Oct 25 from 27 Garden Ridge Municipal Complex Tuesday Oct 26 from 27 Bulverdc Community Center Thurs day Oct 28 from 27

form or they can write to the Comal County Clerk at the Comal County Cour thouse 100 Main Plaza New Braunfels 78130 supplying their name address precinct num ber and voter registration number and the address to which the ballot should be mailed and the rea son for requiring a mailin ballot 65 years of age or older confinement in jail disability or expect ed absence from county on election day and during clerks regular hours for the remainder of the voting period The County Clerks Office can be contacted for precinct numbers and voter registration num bers for those who do not have their numbers The clerks office phone number is 6255513 Supporters say this will encourage voluntary compliance with environmental regulations its unfair to tax property businesses arc required to buy and 32 other states offer similar incentives Opponents say it is not appropriate to offer incen tives to companies to follow the law the loss of this tax base would force local taxpayers to sub sidize the cost of pollution control and other considerations would provide continuing incen tives for businesses to remain in Texas Amendment 3 clears the title to certain property in Fort Bend an Ausiin counties Supporters say this is needed to clear the title to land held by innocent parties resolve an inequity and save the state an expensive court fight Oppo nents say the state needs to resolve such issues in the courts not by the voters Amendment 4 prohibits a state income tax without voter approval and provides that if enact ed the revenue derived would be dedicated to education the rate of local school taxes would be limited Supporters say voters should have the right tQ decide whether they want a state income tax that the dedicated funds would provide a stable source of funding for schools and provide local proper ty tax relief Opponents say the legislature is attempting to cluck respoasibility by passing the tying local school property tax relief to the amendment may make citizens vote for an income tax the amendment would make Texas antiquated tax system even more rigid and inflex ible and would not actually result in any increased revenue Amendment 5 authorizes the legislature to prescribe the duties and remuneration of those holding this office Supporters say sheriffs should be commis sioned peace officers to meet the job qualifications including supervising commissioned personnel and understanding constitutional law regarding civil rights and law enforcement Opponents say voters should be able u decide who is qualified to be sheriff sparsely populated areas may have difficulty finding qualified can didates and approval of this amendment set a precedent for the legislature to set standards for sheriffs to meet See Tuesdays HeraldZeitung for next
