Revision of Constitution to be considered next year Austin a next year you will be witness to and. Hopefully participate in what May Well be a crucial chapter in Texas history. On january 8, 1974, the 181 members of the Texas legislature will Convene in Austin to consider revising or rewriting our state s antiquated Constitution. Eleven months after that you May be asked to pass judgment at the polls on their efforts to bring Texas government into the 20th Century. At the last general election most texans agreed that our Constitution was in need of overhaul. The present Constitution was written in 1875 in reaction to the unjust Rule of a reconstruction government. At that time texans were rightly suspicious of government and sought to constrain its activities. The office of governor was not Given the authority with which to oversee properly the functions of the state. The governor should truly be a chief executive w Ith the Power to regulate directly the activities of state agencies. Only in this Way can the voters of the state hold him responsible. Constitutional restraints on the legislature have almost guaranteed a part time Amateur body of lawmakers. Annual sessions Are vital i believe to the efficient functioning of state government which spends almost $5 billion of your tax Money each year. Many things Are wrong with our present Constitution. It is too Long containing Many provisions which should be statutory Law. It Hamstrings City and county governments making it difficult if not impossible to Deal with contemporary problems. The fact that our present Constitution has been amended 212 times should be ample proof of its inadequacies. There Are some provisions however which i believe should be retained. Chief among these is the requirement that state government stay on a pay As you go basis providing that texans get All the state services they can without going into debt. In recent weeks a 37-member constitutional revision commission held Public hearings throughout the state to get citizen views of what should be included in a new Constitution. Of you missed the hearing in your area you can still have your say by writing the commission at 800 Brazos Austin 78701. It is equally important that you make your views known to your state senator and representative. Theirs will be the formidable and vital task of examining the recommendations of the constitutional revision commission and correlating them with the views of their constituents. I Hope you will take advantage of this Opportunity to participate in modernizing our state government.
