Proposition 7 PASSED With 83% of the Vote

On November 3rd, the voters of Texas approved Proposition 7, a constitutional amendment to authorize new funding sources for improving Texas roads using certain sales tax revenue.  In 2020, the revenue from Prop 7 is estimated to be $3 billion dollars.  The beauty of Prop 7 is that it correlates the funding of roads we drive to the sales tax of the motor vehicles in our state.  This is a huge statement the Texas voters have made about the importance of infrastructure and transportation in Texas correlating to Texas’ pro-business attitude and the value of human lives.

Many thanks to supporters of this constitutional amendment to fund our infrastructure without new taxes, fees or debt.  ASCE Texas Section partnered with Move Texas Forward to educate Texans on this important issue.  The Section appreciates all the efforts of the industry and our membership to pass Proposition 7.  Thank you for your hard work and grassroots support of this civil engineering issue.
