Bters to decide fate of 16 amendments Nov. 2
(EDITOR'S NOTE - The following is the first installment of a three-part series detailing each of the 16 amendments to be voted on Nov. 2)
By ROSE MARIE EASH Staff Writer
On Nov. 2, voters will be asked to consider 16 Texas constitutional amendments. The following arc brief explanations of the amendments.
B Amendment I - authorizes the legislature to issue S50 million in bonds to aid in the start-up costs for historically underutilized businesses (those defined by Government Code as owned by one or more persons who are socially disadvantaged because of their identification as members of certain groups, including African-Americans, Native Americans, Asian Pacitic-Amencans, Hispanic Americans and women.)
Supporters say this will encourage minority business development and correct historic injustices. Those opposed say it will give unfair advantage to minorities and women and it is unfair to ask voters to approve without the specifies 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 partly 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 County Clerk's Office on the 1st Floor, Room 106. Registered voters may cast their ballots from 8 a rn. to 4:30 p m., 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 2-7 p.m.
■ Ciarden Ridge Municipal Complex Tuesday, Oct. 26, from 2-7 p.m.
■ Bulverde Community Center — Thursday, Oct. 28, from 2-7 p m
Applications for vexing by mail will be accepted until Oct 26. Applications must now be mailed. Only the voter may hand deliver hishcr
To vote by mail voters may apply on an official application form or they can write to the Comal County Clerk at the Comal County Courthouse, IOO Main Plaza, New Braunfels, 78130, supplying their name, address, precinct number and vexer registration number and the adeircss to which the ballex shexild be mailed and the reason for requiring a mail-in ballex: 65 years of age e>r older, confinement in jail, disability e>r expected absence from county on election day and during clerk’s regular hours terr the remainder of the vexing period
The County Clerk’s Office can be contacted for precinct numbers anti vexer registration numbers for those whe> do nex have their numbers. The clerk's office phone number is 625-5513.
Supporters say this will encourage voluntary compliance with environmental regulations, it’s unfair to tax property businesses are required to buy and 32 other states offer similar incentives. Opponents say it is not appropriate to offer incentives to companies to follow the law, the loss of this tax base would force local taxpayers to subsidize the cost of pollution control, and other considerations would provide continuing incentives for businesses to remain in Texas.
■ Amendment 3 - clears the title to certain property in Fort Bend an Austin counties
Suppliers say thi.x is needed to dear the title to land held by innocent parties, resolve an inequity and save the state an expensive court fight Opponents 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
Supporters say voters should have the nght tp decide w hcthcr they want a state income tax, that the dedicated funds would provide a stable source of funding for schcx>ls and provide local property tax relief. Opponents say the legislature is attempting to duck responsibility by “passing the vote," tying local sch<x)l 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 inflexible and would mx actually result in any increased revenue
■ Amendment 5 - authonzes the legislature to prcscnbe the duties and remuneration of those holding this office
Supporters say sheriffs should be commissioned peace officers to meet the job qualifications including supervising commissioned personnel and understanding constitutional law regarding civil rights and law enforcement
Opponents say vexers should be able to decide who is qualified to be sheriff, sparsely populated areas may have difficulty finding qualified candidates and approval of this amendment set a precedent for the legislature to set standards for sheriffs to meet.
