Current Bill Summary

SJR 12 - This proposed constitutional amendment, if approved by voters, would increase term limits from eight years to sixteen years total in any one house of the General Assembly. A person is still limited to sixteen years total in the General Assembly, but such person may split service between the House of Representatives and the Senate in any proportion as long as the individual serves no more than sixteen total years.

This amendment is identical to HJR 70 (2010) and is similar to SJR 15 (2007) and SJR 46 (2008).
