Current Bill Summary

SJR 51 - This proposed constitutional amendment, if approved by voters, would increase term limits from eight years to fourteen years total in any one house of the General Assembly. A person is still limited to fourteen 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 fourteen total years. No person shall run for office for either house of the General Assembly if the person would be prohibited from completing the full term in office based on the limitations of this act.

This amendment is similar to SJR 35 (2014), HJR 4 (2013), SJR 10 (2013), SJR 43 (2012), HJR 41 (2012), the perfected version SJR 12 (2011), HJR 70 (2010), SJR 15 (2007) and SJR 46 (2008).
