Bee County voters had only the nine state constitutional amendments on the ballot this election. Statewide, all of the propositions, including the much talked about Proposition 6, were approved by voters on Election Day, Tuesday.

This proposition is a constitutional amendment that will provide for the creation of the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas and the State Water Implementation Revenue Fund for Texas. These funds will help finance priority water projects for the state, including rural and agricultural conservation projects.
