While all eyes were on the presidential and congressional elections, Texas voters also headed to the polls to decide on bond propositions. Voters ended up agreeing to bonds totaling more than $4.8 billion, according to data from Strategic Partnerships Inc.
The largest bonds passed were Austin’s $720 million mobility bond, and Arlington’s $500 million bond, which will partially pay for a new Texas Rangers Stadium.
Other passed propositions include:
- A $139 million bond package for a new south side campus for Del Mar College in Corpus Christi.
- A $55 million bond package for upgrades to Taylor County’s Expo Center.
- School bonds, including $660 million to the El Paso Independent School District, $450 million to the San Antonio ISD, $330 million for the Spring ISD, $268 million going to the Midlothian ISD, and $220 million headed to the Pearland ISD.
- A $7.5 million bond for the Sabine Pass Port Authority, to repair a pier lost to Hurricane Ike.
