State Contitutional Amendment correction.

Like many people, I misunderstood Proposition 1. I had understood that the amendment gave property tax breaks for seniors and the disabled, but at the cost of allowing the Legislature to bust the constitutional spending cap, and as little as six weeks ago that was still true. But Senator Patrick, among others managed to de-link the two. I was unaware of this as were a number of other people. The property tax break is the same break everyone else got but because of an error in the way the bill was written, the elderly and the disabled were left out. This amendment gives the elderly and disabled the same break as everyone else.

Red Ink: Texas heartily endorses the proposition as it is written now.
