NEW YORK – Voters in Texas yesterday gave approval to most school districts seeking to sell bonds, according to unofficial results, with  the Dallas Independent School District earning the right to issue bonds for its $1.35 billion construction and renovation program.

It was a split decision from voters in the Lewisville ISD, who faced $776.7 million in two propositions. The larger $697 million bond proposal, which would fund new schools, renovations, technology updates and land purchases, was passed, while plans for a $79 million events center was rejected by voters.
