Attorney general rejects term limits proposal

Posted By on Thu, Jun 25, 2015 at 2:20 PM

Attorney General Leslie Rutledge released today an opinion rejecting the proposed wording of a constitutional amendment to shorten term limits for state elected officials from the current 16 years (18 in some cases on account of vagaries tied to decennial Senate redistricting) to 10 years, with no more than six years in the House or eight years in the Senate.

The opinion said the proposal, submitted by Fayetteville lawyer Brenda V. Taylor didn't adequately explain the impact on current law, among some other technical deficiencies. It presumably will be amended and resubmitted.
