Term Limit Proposal Introduced In PA Legislature

Legislation has been introduced to impose term limits on members of the state House and Senate. The proposal would amend the state Constitution to limit state legislators to 12 consecutive years of service in each chamber. State representatives could serve no more than six consecutive two-year terms. Senators would be limited to three consecutive four-year terms. The clock would not begin running until the measure is in place, and members would be able to run again after sitting out one term. Because it's a Constitutional amendment, the measure would need to pass the House and Senate in consecutive sessions, then be put to the voters in a referendum.
