Senator Chris McDaniel Introduces Term Limits Amendment In 2017 Session.
Senator Chris McDaniel has introduced a bill to limit the terms of Missississippi Legislators. The legislation, Senate Resolution 545, would limit a person to “no more than two successive terms in the Mississippi House of Representatives or in the Mississippi Senate. Four years after the expiration of the second term, a person may be elected again to the other house for two terms, but shall not serve more than a total of sixteen years.”
As might have been expected of popular legislation filed by my friend from Jones County, SR 545 has been double referred and will be going to both the Rules Committee and the Constitution Committee in the state senate.
