New Term Limits Voted In For House Leaders Under New House Leader

In a 70-to-44 vote, legislators adopted major rule changes for the 102nd state General Assembly, most notably term limits for the Speaker and Minority Leader.

As of yesterday’s vote, both positions are now limited to five two-year terms in the General Assembly.
