Vote No on Proposition 4
Proposition 4 is a constitutional amendment that would prohibit the Legislature from creating a state income tax. A “no” vote keeps current protections, so that a state income tax can’t take effect without approval by the Legislature and a statewide vote. Prop 4 is:
- Unfair – The rules are rigged against us, in favor of the wealthy. Prop 4 is just another way for the rich to avoid paying their fair share.
- Unnecessary – The Texas Constitution already gives Texas voters control over creation of a state income tax.
- Unwise – Prop 4 severely limits our ability to raise the resources needed to ensure a strong future for Texas families—like quality schools, affordable health care, and better roads.

Be Part of the Rx for TX
Year after year, advocates in Texas have worked to try and improve the state of health care with very little success. But the stakes are too high to accept inaction from our legislature. That’s why CPPP is proud to be part of the #SickOfItTX campaign to build a grassroots network of informed and engaged activists committed to making health care the key issue for Texas policymakers and candidates in the 2020 elections and the 2021 legislative session.
