State Democrat Party referenda topics.(mischief)

Maybe a catch thread for all the mischief the democrats are steaming over. Also included the statewide results from the primary via unofficial results posted at the SOS website. These items as a whole do not read as draconian guaranties (constitutional amendments) or strict statutes. But they can lead to some very ugly sausage making.
If found off topic for the subject matter of subforum please advise.
Spanish versions of below items can be found on the respective sample ballot for your district. Omitted here with prejudice.

REFERENDA ITEM # 1 ON ECONOMIC
SECURITY & PROSPERITY
Should the Texas Legislature and the
United States Congress pass an
economic security and prosperity plan for
families that includes higher incomes by
raising the state minimum wage
to a
livable wage, passing the Paycheck
Fairness Act to ensure equal pay for
equal work
, guaranteeing paid family
leave to care for a child or ill loved one,
fully funding public neighborhood schools,
and making a debt-free community
college education
a reality for
hardworking students?

In Favor 1,616,366 93.95%
Against 103,929 6.04%


REFERENDA ITEM # 2 ON A FAIR
CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM
Should the Texas Legislature and the
United States Congress pass criminal
justice reform legislation that ensures
equal justice throughout our society
without respect to race, socioeconomic
status, geographic location, or other
factors unrelated to behavior, ensuring as
well common sense policies to protect the
rights of law enforcement officers, the
community, and defendants in the
criminal justice system?

In Favor 1,222,186 93.94%
Against 78,759 6.05%


REFERENDA ITEM # 3 ON CLIMATE
Should the Texas Legislature and the

transition to renewable, non-polluting
energy as a means to slow down climate
change and its impact on the planet?

REFERENDA ITEM # 5 ON CAMPUS
CARRY
Should the Texas Legislature allow each
public institution of higher education (not
only private universities) to opt out of the
ability to carry guns on campus?

Against 298,122 22.43%


REFERENDA ITEM # 6 ON

and provides workforce solutions for
businesses

Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
When those fail, aim for center mass.
