A St. Louis area Lawmaker says he doesn't support legislation that would ask voters to extend term limits in the General Assembly. Aaron Cummins has that story from Jefferson City--
A joint resolution filed Wednesday by Democratic Senator John Schneider would pose a question to voters in the 2000 election.
It would ask them to extend the term limits to 12 years from the previous 8.
Clayton Senator David Klarich says because of the way the resolution is written it would allow a senator to remain in office for up to twenty years.
Klarich said he would support extending the term limits to 12 years-- if it was retroactive until 1992 when term limits were first put in place by Missouri's voters. From the capitol, I'm Aaron Cummins.
Lawmakers filed legislation that would ask Missouri's voters to change the state's laws on legislative term limits. But, term limit supporters aren't in full agreement with the proposed change. Aaron Cummins has that story from Jefferson City--
Two separate resolutions filed Wednesday would affect term limit laws.
One would increase the limit to 12 years from 8. The other would let voter's petition to allow a legislator to run for reelection despite reaching the limit.
St. Louis area Senator David Klarich says he supports the increase to 12 years, but sees a flaw with this particular bill.
Klarich says that means a current senator could stay in office until 2014. From the state capitol, Aaron Cummins reporting.
