Yes, No, Maybe

Several local organizations have taken positions on the Nov. 6 Travis County bond election, with the largest share of opposition growing against Prop. 3, the $32.7 million bond measure for right-of-way purchases to round out the construction of SH 45 North and the expansion of FM 1826. Here's how the votes shake out from business organizations, Democratic clubs, and environmental and neighborhood groups. (For more info on each of the four propositions and the Chronicle endorsements, turn to p.4):
