Voters to See Proposed Changes to Texas’ Constitution in Ballot
WESLACO – Early voting for the Nov. 7th election is underway and Texans are being asked to approve seven amendments to the state’s constitution.
Any changes to the Texas Constitution must be approved by residents.
“What happens is every legislative session, which is every other year – odd number years – our legislators will meet and then there will be some laws that go to the governor’s desk and then some laws, you know, different ways that they go through the House and the Congress, the congressional process,” Hidalgo County Elections Administrator Yvonne Ramon said.
One amendment on the ballot would allow Texas lawmakers to require any surviving spouse of a first responder killed in the line of duty receive benefits.
