JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — An Eagle River Republican has proposed a constitutional amendment limiting the terms of state legislators.
HJR 21, from Rep. Lora Reinbold, says that no one who has served as a state representative for four full or partial successive terms would be eligible to hold that office until one full term has intervened. It says that no one who has served two full or partial successive terms as a senator could hold that office again until one full term has intervened.
Representatives are elected to two-year terms and senators to four-year terms.
Proposed constitutional amendments must pass with a two-thirds vote of each the House and Senate to qualify for the ballot and a vote by the people.
