US Term Limit Group Condemns Missouri Term Limit Changes as a ‘Scam”

The head of the US Term Limits s Philip Blumel blasted the idea of extending Missouri’s legislative term limits by four years.
The Missouri house Rules Committee has passed House Joint Resolution (HJR) 4. Blumel calls the measure “a scam for legislators to spend more time in Jefferson City”.
Missouri’s lawmakers are now limited to serving four 2-year terms in the House. That’s a total of eight years.
State Senators are limited to two 4-year terms in that Chamber. That’s another eight years.
If a House member serves the full 8 years in the House, then is elected to the State Senate, the member could be in the legislature for 16 years total.
The new bill would add four years to the House limit and another four to the Senate limit.
“HJR 41 would allow these politicians to camp out in the Senate and House of Representatives for 24 years,” Blumel charged.
He says his group are writing letter to all 163 members of the State House urging them to defeat the bill.
