I emailed my rep, Vicki Truitt, and got this response from a staffer:
There seems to be a lot of misinformation being disseminated recently. I have included several helpful resources below to help you better understand the background and purpose of each amendment as well as what opponents and supporters say. Please see below.
The text of the amendments (from the Secretary of State's Office): http://www.sos.state.tx.us/elections/vo ... lang.shtml
Statements explaining the intended effect of passage of each amendment (from the Secretary of State's Office): http://www.sos.state.tx.us/elections/vo ... texp.shtml
A more in-depth analysis of the amendments (from the Texas Legislative Council and the House Research organization, non partisan legislative resources) : http://www.tlc.state.tx.us/pubsconamend ... yses09.pdf
Again, I hope you find this helpful. This may be more information than you were hoping for! If you know of others that may have concern about the proposed amendments, please share this information with them. Please let me know if you still have questions after reading this and I will certainly do my best to help answer your questions.
Also, I might add that Representative Truitt is planning to hold a meeting this Saturday, October 24 at the Colleyville Library (second floor) to try to clear up questions and concerns of constituents about the proposed constitutional amendments. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 10am and is open to the public.
