With Proposition 8, Texas would set money aside for future flooding

If approved by voters next month, the constitutional amendment would set aside $800 million from the state's rainy day fund for flood mitigation efforts.

Flood waters in a neighborhood along Eldridge Parkway flooded by waters released from the Addicks Reservoir, in Houston on Wednesday, Aug. 30, 2017.
