Argument in Favor of Proposition Two
According to the League of Women Voters, one argument people have made in favor of proposition 2 is that “Since the SMEB and its education funds are no longer operational, references to them should be removed from the state’s unwieldy constitution.”
The Texas Legislative Council (TLC) reports that supporters of the measure argue that this amendment would shrink state government, help streamline the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and simplify the state constitution. The state’s Sunset Advisory Commission recommended eliminating this provision years ago, and it is time to finally get rid of it.
