LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

For the second time in less than three years, a Nacogdoches ISD bond has failed to pass in an election.

Voters chose against the $43.3 million bond. The measure failed 2388-1997. This comes after a $58 million bond failed in May 2014.

Nacogdoches County voters also voted against approving funding for a County Assistance District. The measure would have meant an extra one percent in sales tax in certain portions of the county.

Voters have approved a tax ratification for Lufkin ISD in an election Tuesday night. The measure passed 1658-293 with 85% voting for the measure.

Lufkin ISD officials say the measure will mean the district will gain $3 million in revenue per year.

Voters statewide approved all seven proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution on Tuesday - giving themselves tax breaks, cementing their rights to hunt and fish, pumping billions of extra public dollars into roads and freeing some top elected officials from having to live in the state capital.

Gov. Greg Abbott said by passing every measure by wide margins, Texans "are creating an even better place for future generations to live, work and raise a family."
