Texas Secretary of State Nandita Berry has announced that a proposed amendment to the Texas Constitution will appear on the November 4, 2014, ballot.
The amendment, which will appear on the ballot as proposition 1, is related to transportation.

Secretary Berry also released a statement concerning the unusual timeframe in which the proposed constitutional amendment will be voted upon.
“I want to ensure that Texas voters are prepared and aware of what will be on the ballot this November,” Secretary Berry said. “Constitutional amendments are not usually on even-year ballots, but this election is an exception.”
