Term Limits Amendment Clears Hurdle In Ohio
Friday, February 28, 2020

A proposed constitutional amendment that would set 16-year term limits on legislators serving in the Ohio House or Senate is moving forward.

The group Ohioans for Legislative Term Limits behind this amendment, are seeking to close a loophole that has allowed multiple legislators to jump back and forth between the House and Senate after reaching the current eight-year limit in one or the other chamber.

Republican Attorney General Dave Yost’s office certified the campaign’s first 1,000 signatures on Thursday. The issue goes next to the state Ballot Board, which must determine whether it contains a single issue or multiple issues.

The group’s goal is to place the amendment on the November 3rd ballot.
