Official List of March Republican Primary Ballot Propositions

The State Republican Executive Committee approved placing eleven propositions on the March Republican Primary ballot at its quarterly meeting this Saturday. The propositions are non-binding, meaning they do not create laws. However, they are a proven, effective way to poll Republican voters on various issues and inform elected officials on where those voters stand.

Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey issued the following statement:

“The SREC deliberated and delivered eleven propositions to place on our Primary ballot. We look forward to hearing from our voters on these issues and to sharing the results with lawmakers. Whatever the results, we will continue working towards making our principles a reality.”

Here is the full list of ballot propositions submitted by the SREC for inclusion on the 2018 Republican General Primary Election ballot:

  1. Texas should replace the property tax system with an appropriate consumption tax equivalent. Yes/No
  2. No governmental entity should ever construct or fund construction of toll roads without voter approval. Yes/No
  3. Republicans in the Texas House should select their Speaker nominee by secret ballot in a binding caucus without Democrat influence. Yes/No
  4. Texas should require employers to screen new hires through the free E-Verify system to protect jobs for legal workers. Yes/No
  5. Texas families should be empowered to choose from public, private, charter, or homeschool options for their children’s education, using tax credits or exemptions without government constraints or intrusion. Yes/No
  6. Texas should protect the privacy and safety of women and children in spaces such as bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers in all Texas schools and government buildings. Yes/No
  7. I believe abortion should be abolished in Texas. Yes/No
  8. Vote fraud should be a felony in Texas to help ensure fair elections. Yes/No
  9. Texas demands that Congress completely repeal Obamacare. Yes/No
  10. To slow the growth of property taxes, yearly revenue increases should be capped at 4%, with increases in excess of 4% requiring voter approval. Yes/No
  11. Tax dollars should not be used to fund the building of stadiums for professional or semi-professional sports teams. Yes/No

TX Railroad Commissioner Wayne Christian: Climate Change

Friends,

I recently had the privilege of hearing Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy speak about American energy from his state’s perspective. He confirmed what I have believed for a long time, the greatest threat to American energy dominance isn’t a lack of innovation, technology, or markets, it is public opinion and the resulting draconian political policies of the far-left.
