ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WMAR) -
A Maryland Congressman has introduced a resolution that would limit the number of terms that a person can serve in Congress.
Today, Representative Andy Harris M.D. introduced a Joint Resolution that would limit the number of consecutive terms that a person could serve in the U.S. Congress.
The resolution would limit persons to two consecutive terms in the Senate and six consecutive terms in the House of Representatives.
Representative Harris released this statement about the bill:
"Limiting Congressional terms is a common sense way to change Washington and make sure our elected leaders work for the people instead of the special interests. We need more citizen leaders who are willing to address our challenges instead of coming to Washington to become career politicians. Far too many of our leaders are more worried about the next election than addressing out of control spending or preserving our entitlement programs. We need to break the gridlock in Washington caused in part by career politicians."
