Frequently Asked Questions - Q44


Question:

Apparently your group believes there is little downside to voter approval of this charter amendment?

Answer:

Actually, we believe there is zero downside to voter approval of this charter amendment. Individual Houstonians (regardless of economical position), Houston businesses, City employees, and bondholders alike will benefit from the stronger fiscal stability, responsibility and accountability that will result from passage of this charter amendment. We believe that passage of this amendment may have a profoundly positive attraction to businesses considering whether to relocate to Houston. However, most Houston business growth results from local start-ups, expansions and spin offs of our existing businesses, all of whom will greatly benefit from reasonable limits on the Houston tax burden.
