All 7 amendments to Texas Constitution approved

Posted: Updated:

Seven more amendments to the Texas Constitution get your blessing, or at least the few who made the effort to vote. 

The changes provide more tax exemptions for disabled veterans and spouses, give new conditions on home equity loans, limit the service of certain gubernatorial appointees after their term expires, and requires the attorney general to provide notice of a lawsuit against the state's constitution.

The last few allow more pro sport's teams to hold raffles for charity, provides homestead exemption for spouses of first responders killed in action, and allows financial institutions to award prizes to customers to encourage saving.
