Voters Will Decide On Term Limits

(Sacramento, CA)
Tuesday, June 5, 2012

Proposition 28 would reduce the total amount of time a person can serve in the state legislature from 14 to 12 years.

But, elected officials could serve those 12 years in either the Senate or Assembly. Right now, lawmakers are allowed to serve only eight years in the Senate and six years in the Assembly.

Supporters say legislators would gain more experience - and perhaps be more resistant to lobbyists - if they're able to serve all their time in one chamber.

Opponents say extending the time a person can serve in each house only benefits politicians, not constituents.

Term limits of those currently serving would not be affected by the change.
