Wow – these rep-elects don’t wait around do they? You might remember Rep-elect Michael Caldwell for sending refunds to his contributors. He campaigned on the importance of consecutive term limits and pre-filed HR5: Term Limits yesterday.
This is his synopsis sent via email:
HR 5 proposes a Constitutional Amendment requiring term limits on our State Legislators. These would be consecutive, not complete, term limits. A legislator could run for a particular office for four two year terms in a row, then would be required to take two years away from that seat before running again. This forces every incumbent to run against a sitting incumbent at least once a decade, and also encourages taking two years to go back to life as an ordinary citizen once a decade.
