Texas voters will go the polls on November 5 for a Constitutional Amendment Election. If approved by voters, Proposition 5 will permanently dedicate the proceeds from the sporting goods sales tax to state and local parks and historic sites. Park enthusiasts have been working to get this done for decades, and during this last Legislative Session, park champions Senator Lois Kolkhorst and Rep. John Cyrier were able to finally get the legislation passed. Now it’s up to Texas voters. Listen in on a conversation with the two legislators and John Shepperd with the Texas Foundation for Conservation to learn more about why you should vote for Prop. 5 on November 5.
