Lawmakers Want to Limit Term Limits

A group of state lawmakers is quietly backing a campaign to prolong the maximum tenure in
office.

The lawmakers are working to place an initiative on the March 2002 ballot that would give voters the power to extend the careers of popular
legislators.

Under the initiative, legislators could petition constituents in their districts to remain in office beyond the current limit of six years in the
Assembly and eight years in the Senate.
