Rep. Tom Marino (R-Pa.) introduced a bill to establish term limits for members of the House and Senate.
Under Marino’s H.J. Res 29 proposal to amend the Constitution, House members could serve up to six two-year terms, while senators would be limited to two six-year terms.
The Pennsylvania Republican, who’s served in the House since 2011, said some of his fellow lawmakers have overstayed beyond their effectiveness.
“Too few have had power for too long,” Marino said in a statement. “I have great friendships and working relationships with many of my colleagues here in D.C. but a common thread among many of them is they have been here too long and not enough has changed for the better; it has gotten worse.”
Marino argued that capping lawmakers’ time on Capitol Hill would give them an incentive to make “meaningful change” or else step aside. ~ FULL STORY BY THE HILL CONTINUES HERE
