Texans to vote on lowering property taxes, local elections Saturday

Saturday is election day across Texas.

Voters will decide on two proposed amendments to the state constitution that would cut property taxes if passed.

One would lower school property tax bills for the elderly and Texans with disabilities. The other would raise the state’s homestead exemption from school property taxes from $25,000 to $40,000.
