Sen. Randy Brogdon
Edmondson Reach Agreement on Term Limits Language
State Sen. Randy
Brogdon said Attorney General Drew Edmondson’s office
has agreed to compromise legislative language on a term limits referendum.
The language ensures that the proposed 12-year term limits for statewide
elected officials would not apply retroactively.
“General Edmondson made some suggested changes to the bill’s
language. I merged his language with my amended language, and I
heard back from his office this morning that he has no additional
changes,” said Brogdon, R-Owasso.
“It looks like we will be good to go with these changes if
we can get an agreement with Senate Democrats to send the bill to
conference committee, make the changes, and bring the bill back
to the Senate floor for a vote,” Brogdon said.
“I am confident that the Democrat senators who voted for
this term limits bill earlier in the session will appreciate the
good faith efforts we have made to ensure that the term limits are
not retroactive,” he said.
Brogdon offered the term limits amendment that was attached to
SB 1987. If passed by the Legislature, the term limits proposal
will go to a vote of the people.
