AUSTIN (KYTX) - Senator Kevin Eltife, R-Tyler, today filed a proposed constitutional amendment to impose term limits on statewide officeholders in Texas. The legislation would apply to the Governor, Lt. Governor, Secretary of State, Comptroller, Land Commissioner, Agriculture Commissioner, Railroad Commissioners and Attorney General, and would limit those officials to two consecutive terms.

I have always been a believer in term limits and feel that it allows for fresh ideas and perspectives in elected office," said Senator Eltife. "I hope the other members of the Legislature will join me in allowing the voters of Texas to have a say on term limits for our statewide officeholders."

If passed by the House and Senate, SJR 13 would be presented to the voters on November 5, 2013.
