Citizens Vote Against Prop 2
Austin American-Statesman, May 15, 2006

May 2006

Voters nix strengthening the Save Our Springs Ordinance. Anti-regulatory sentiment could have contributed to this outcome but others blame confusing ballot language.  

The opposition didn't have to do with opposition to the environment as a priority. It [the ballot language] just wasn't precise enough, and that was the issue.

— Jackie Goodman, Former City Councilmember
