Texas Prop 1

Over at 3 Boxes of BS, the author explains why he voted against Prop 1. I made the same call, for similar reasons, with the following addition:

I voted against, for pretty much the same reasons. Plus the local pols have been trying to get funding for their "light rail" projects in pretty much every single election since I moved here, and getting increasingly desperate each time they lose (and sometimes finding money elsewhere). The wording of this change doesn't say anything about light rail, but doesn't exclude it either.

Even if it was right to transfer the money out, I don't trust politicians to spend it on actual roads rather than light rail vanity projects.

We'll see if it passes.
