Your Voice: Republican ballot includes proposition on bail in Texas

El Paso News

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – In the Texas 2020 Primary Election, both the Democratic and Republican ballots have included a list of propositions on several hot-button issues. It’s important to note that the propositions are not actual legislation. Meaning that voting one way will have no immediate effect.

The lists of propositions are merely a survey for both parties to find out where their voters stand on certain subjects.

KTSM 9 News has gone through the list of propositions and is letting viewers voice their opinions on each subject. This article will focus on Republican Proposition #9. Tell us what you think on Facebook or Twitter. Your comment may be used during our special election broadcast.

PROPOSITION #9

“Bail in Texas should be based only on a person’s danger to society and risk of flight, not that person’s ability to pay.”
