Political And Other Miscellany From A Stout Democrat In Dallas Texas.
"Politics is the only game for adults." --from Robert A. Heinlein's Double Star

This year we get to vote on sixteen proposed amendments to the state Constitution. Though there are important questions about taxes and bonds, few are paying attention. Fortunately, the League of Women Voters has produced a Voters Guide, giving for each proposal an explanation with arguments for and against. You can read it or print all twelve pages from the pdf at this page.

If you really want to get down into the fine details of them all, the Texas Legislative Council has put online a massive 131-page pdf you can read or print at this page. I'll bet you didn't realize that we still haven't abolished the obsolete office of Inspector Of Hides And Animals (see proposition 10), or that the legislature isn't currently required to take record votes on bills (see number 11).
