Saccone Legislation Would Limit Terms of State Lawmakers to 12 Years
HARRISBURG—Rep. Rick Saccone (R-Allegheny/Washington) today announced the introduction of House Bill 2160 that would limit the number of terms any individual could serve in the Pennsylvania General Assembly.
“This legislation clearly has the vast support of Pennsylvania voters and taxpayers because it will help to ensure that Pennsylvania’s Legislature is always refreshed with new ideas and innovative perspectives to solve up-to-the-minute challenges,” said Saccone. “Our founders intended for public service in any legislative body to be temporary, limited, and never a permanent career. House Bill 2160 will ensure that these great intentions are finally realized.”
If enacted, House Bill 2160 would limit any lawmaker elected to serve in the Pennsylvania General Assembly to a combined total of 12 years in office. This would include combined House and Senate service.
“Term limits have been and will remain a major priority of my reform agenda,” said Saccone. “Again, just like the founding fathers and the majority of voters in this Commonwealth, I firmly believe that holding elected office is a personal sacrifice one willingly makes by leaving his or her profession to serve the public for a finite period of time.”
