Capital Highlights: Voters back property tax amendments

Texas voters overwhelmingly approved two proposed amendments on Saturday that will provide property tax relief to homeowners.

According to the Austin American-Statesman, nearly 85% of voters supported Proposi-tion 2, which raises the homestead exemption from $25,000 to $40,000 starting this year. That will save the average homeowner about $175 in school property taxes.
