ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

On Tuesday, voters from all over Texas will head to the polls to cast their votes on a variety of proposed laws and schools bonds.  

From proposed state laws, to proposed school bonds, to even a possible tax ratification, lots of new legislation is on the table heading into tomorrow’s election in Deep East Texas. 

Voters state-wide will decide the fate of seven proposed laws. The laws range from hunting rights to transportation. Of the proposed seven, Prop 6 would allow fishing and hunting to be considered a constitutional right though it will still be subject to laws that promote wildlife conservation.

Proposition 7 would allow for increased transportation funding. The funds would only be used on existing highways or new projects in Texas which is expected to reach a population of 40 million by year 2030.

Voters in Nacogdoches County will decide whether or not to pass a $43.3 million school bond. If passed, the bond would go toward construction of new schools and repairs on existing schools in the county.

In Lufkin, voters will decide the fate of a tax ratification. That election would free up $3 million from the state annually and won’t cost voters a thing. The current tax rate is 1.213 percent and would remain the same for those living in the city under the proposed ratification.

Voting begins Tuesday at 7 a.m. and will continue until 7 p.m.
