Houston voters agree to foot the bill for bonds

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

Houston voters agreed to foot the bill for several large bond proposals.

-- The biggest: Houston ISD's $1.9-billion bond to improve or rebuild more than a dozen schools.
-- With approval of its $425-million bond proposal, Houston Community College will expand facilities.
-- The city can use millions to improve public safety, parks and libraries.

While some say this is an investment in the future, others say we don't need to take on more debt.

HISD's bond is estimated to add about $70 a year to the tax load of the average homeowner.
