During the 87th Regular Session, the Texas Legislature approved support for legislation that was signed by the Governor (HJR 99) giving Texans an opportunity to empower Texas Counties to make local infrastructure funding a priority by providing them with the ability to bond revenue from transportation reinvestment zones (TRZ’s) to build added infrastructure capacity.
The Chamber supported the enabling legislation for Prop 2 (HJR 99) in order to give the opportunity for Texas voters to weigh in on this critical issue.
Texans will have the opportunity to vote on Proposition 2, which gives counties the same ability to build much needed infrastructure that cities and towns already have and allow counties to dedicate additional infrastructure funding to keep Texans safe on the road while reducing time spent in traffic.
Early voting begins Monday, October 18th and ends Friday October 29th. Election day is November 2.
