Understanding Legislative Term Limits
This book examines the reasoning behind the term limit laws and takes a closer look at the consequences of preventing an individual from serving too long. Allowing a dynasty of the rich and powerful to run the legislature or giving the average citizen a chance to serve...states with term limit laws are full of controversy. This book examines the pros and cons of term limits and what happens to our system of government when elected officials are booted out of office after a predetermined amount of time. Do we give the regular guy (or girl) an opportunity to make a difference or do we give up a wealth of knowledge and experience at a critical time in the governing process? While no other industry forces out the most experienced worker after serving long enough to become an effective part of the team, more and more State Legislatures have rules that do just that.
