Lubbock Chamber announces support for Prop. 4

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Lubbock Chamber of Commerce will hold a news conference on Tuesday afternoon to announce its support for Proposition 4, a constitutional amendment aimed at increasing the number of Tier One universities in Texas.

Texas Senator Robert Duncan and Texas Tech University System Chancellor Kent Hance also will be on hand as Chamber officials urge Lubbock area citizens to vote in favor of the measure, which appears on the November ballot.

The Lubbock Chamber is working toward the success of Proposition 4 with Texans For Tier One, statewide organization formed to push the passage of the measure. For more information on Proposition 4 go to www.TexansForTierOne.com.

The Chamber this year received the highest five-star accreditation rating from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and is the only Chamber in the nation to also have been named American Chamber of Commerce Executives "chamber of the Year" nationwide in the same 12 month period.

Local officials aren't the only ones supporting Proposition 4. Governor Rick Perry cast his early ballot Tuesday saying he's very interested in the passage of propositions for research universities and eminent domain.
