Senate Democrats Kill Term Limits For
State Capitol, Oklahoma City –Democrats on the
Senate Rules Committee killed legislation Wednesday that would
have sent term limits for statewide officials to a vote of the
SJR 33 by Senator Randy
Brogdon, R-Owasso, would have put a
12 year term limit on Oklahoma's statewide elected officials
except the governor if approved by voters.
Governors are already limited to 2 terms (8 years) of service,
and state legislators are already limited to 12 years of service.
"Senate Democrats killed the chance for the people to vote to
apply the same term limits on statewide officials that currently
exist for state legislators," Brogdon said.
"Term limits have brought fresh ideas to the state legislature,
and I believe term limits would have a similarly positive effect
on statewide offices," he stated. "The Democrats' blatantly partisan
attempt to protect career politicians is very disappointing."
