The SBAC urges legislators to support limiting a person’s total service in the office of Speaker of the House of Representatives, President of the Senate, Minority Leader of the House of Representatives and Minority Leader of the Senate. Reform is important to ensure no one individual accumulates too much power or influence over our state’s government. It will also help curb the influence of entrenched interests in the political process and give it back to voters. Enacting term limits for leadership will help restore the confidence of job creators in our government, thereby encouraging them to grow and create jobs.
This legislation was filed in the Senate on February 6, 2018, but no further action was taken.
