State Senate Leader Can Run Again

Sponsored by:

The state attorney general says California€™s term limit law doesn´t bar the Senate€™s majority leader from running for re-election in 2004.

Senator Don Perata was first elected to the Senate on November 3rd, 1998 to serve out the second half of Oakland Democrat Barbara Lee€™s 4-year term. Lee was elected to Congress earlier that year. But Perata didn€™t take his seat in the Senate until December 7th, when the Legislature began its 1999-2000 session.

Attorney General Bill Lockyer says that means that Perata served less than half of the remainder of Lee€™s term and can run for re-election.
