Referendums and Ballot Measures
Non-Binding Referendum 1 - In-State Tuition for Residences of Three Years
Any graduate of a Texas high school, who has lived in the state for at least three years and lived here continuously for the last year, should be eligible for in-state tuition at state supported colleges and universities and given the opportunity to earn legal status through a higher education or military service.
Non-Binding Referendum 2 - Affordable Tuition Fees
Because a college education is increasingly necessary for jobs that allow our citizens to achieve middle class lifestyles and become the entrepreneurs who create the jobs that our economy relies on, we call on the Texas Legislature to fund colleges and universities such that tuition and fees can be affordable to all Texans.
Non-Binding Referendum 3 - Legalize Casino Gambling
Should the Texas Legislature allow the people of Texas to vote to legalize casino gambling with all funds generated being used only for education?
