Washington, D.C., January 10, 2023
Yesterday, I introduced my first piece of legislation for the new Congress. It calls for a Constitutional amendment to impose TERM LIMITS in the House and Senate, similar to what I’ve proposed previously.
This resolution calls for three terms in the House, and two in the Senate. Congress can certainly debate the appropriate number of terms, of course; this is a starting point for negotiations. As this effort gains traction, I’d imagine these limits could be adjusted upwards slightly, especially for the House.
Here’s the reality on term limits – two things are true:
I’ve got 43 original co-sponsors to this bipartisan resolution; that number should grow in the coming weeks and months. Also, thanks to the discussions last week during the House Speaker’s election, I do expect either my resolution or a similar effort to receive a vote in Congress this term. That's good news.
