Prop 1: Official Ballot Language:
The constitutional amendment authorizing the legislature to provide for an exemption from ad valorem taxation of all or part of the market value of the residence homestead of the surviving spouse of a member of the armed services of the United States who is killed in action.
FOR - Reason: Surviving spouses who qualify would be able to save money on property taxes and could use this money elsewhere.  They have to qualify before receiving the help.  They deserve the relief for their dedication to our safety.  To answer the question against this prop of cities with large population of military, they still have to qualify. 

Prop 2:  Official Ballot Language:
The constitutional amendment eliminating an obsolete requirement for a State Medical Education Board and a State Medical Education Fund, neither of which is operational.
AGAINST – Reason:  The SMEB and its education fund are obsolete and no loans have been issued since 1988, so a constitutional amendment to remove references to them is unnecessary, plus in case of the need it will still be available.  No loss to leave it as is…

Prop 3:  Official Ballot Language:
The constitutional amendment to authorize a political subdivision of this state to extend the number of days that aircraft parts that are exempt from ad valorem taxation due to their location in this state for a temporary period may be located in this state for purposes of qualifying for the tax exemption. 
FOR - Reason: Granting an extension would be totally at the option of each local government already granting an exemption.  Loss of tax revenue to a school district that grants a free port exemption may be offset by additional state aid, since the amount of the exemption is subtracted from the market value of inventory or property to determine the taxable value for the taxing authority. Any extra cost to the state could be offset by additional revenues from increased economic development and jobs.

Prop 4: Official Ballot Language:
The constitutional amendment authorizing the Texas legislature to provide for an exemption from ad valorem taxation of part of the market value of the residence homestead of a partially disabled veteran or the surviving spouse of a partially disabled veteran if the residence homestead was donated to the disabled veteran by a charitable organization.
FOR - Reason: The cost of the exemption is small because only a dozen or so homes per year are donated cost-free to disabled veterans.  Mainly it allows for Disabled Vets who require more expensive home amenities for their injuries.

Prop 5:  Official Ballot Language:
The constitutional amendment to authorize the making of a reverse mortgage loan for the purchase of homestead property and to amend lender disclosures and other requirements in connection with a reverse mortgage loan.
FOR – Reason: This helps seniors relocate to other geographical areas or downsize to homes that better meet their needs.  Texas is the only state that doesn’t offer this, and we have the largest amount of these types of loans.  Besides there are plenty of regulations over companies offering these types of loans.  Another reason to elect an excellent Attorney General who will careful watches and care for our seniors from fraud.

Prop 6:  Official Ballot Language:
The constitutional amendment providing for the creation of the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas and the State Water Implementation Revenue Fund for Texas to assist in the financing of priority projects in the state water plan to ensure the availability of adequate water resources.
FOR - Reason:  These two new funds are necessary as there is not available funding for water development projects.  While TWDB needs to proceed with priority projects, taking money from the Rainy Day Fund is appropriate. Reducing the amount in this fund will not reduce the state’s excellent credit rating and not affect the state’s ability to respond to a natural disaster or other emergency situations. I am for water needed in Texas but this is the way to accomplish it!

Prop 7:  Official Ballot Language:
The constitutional amendment authorizing a home-rule municipality to provide in its charter the procedure to fill a vacancy on its governing body for which the unexpired term is 12 months or less.
AGAINST – Reason:  Voting and elections are the best way to ensure democratic accountability. The cost of special elections is a small price to pay to ensure accountability.  Besides appointments have been corrupt and could be against the wishes of the governed!

Prop 8:  Official Ballot Language:
The constitutional amendment repealing Section 7, Article IX, Texas Constitution, which relates to the creation of a hospital district in Hidalgo County.
FOR - Reason: Hidalgo County has a high rate of uninsured residents, and this proposition could help the county establish a hospital district and obtain federal funds for much-needed emergency care for the poor. Besides Hidalgo County will have the same taxing rate that other counties have, and they get to vote on any work done in the first place.
