The East Parker County Chamber board believes mobility is key to maintaining our quality of life and it is critical for economic success. That is why the Chamber of Commerce is enlisting the active support of the citizens of Parker County to vote “Yes” to Proposition 7: the constitutional amendment slated for the Nov. 3, ballot.
The 84th Texas Legislature passed historic legislation proposing a constitutional amendment on the state ballot affecting the state’s roads, highways, and bridges. In addition, the constitutional amendment is dedicating certain sales and use tax revenue as well as motor vehicle sales, use, and rental tax revenue to the state highway fund to provide funding for non-tolled roads and the reduction of certain transportation-related debt. The proposed amendment will aid in maintaining the current infrastructure and will ease congestion by funding new projects for added capacity without any new or increased taxes, fees or debt.
A strong transportation system is fundamental to Texas’ quality of life and economic vitality, attracting new businesses and generating new jobs. The proposed amendment would result in an estimated $3 billion per year for the state highway fund. The East Parker County Chamber of Commerce supports the proposed amendment to address Texas’ transportation infrastructure needs on the Nov. 3, ballot.
