Voters statewide added three new provisions to the state constitution.
  
They agreed to an amendment creating a property tax break for all property delivered to a construction site for use in building industrial plants, companies and houses.
  
They supported the expansion of a property tax exemption given to the surviving spouses of police officers and certain others who die in the line of duty to cover spouses of more first responders, such as paramedics.
  
And they backed an amendment directing money from any new gasoline tax into a protected fund for direct transportation costs, not state employee salaries.
