Marshfield senator wants term limit changes

Sen. Dan Clemens, R-Marshfield, has prefiled a joint resolution calling for a constitutional amendment that would increase the time legislators can serve and make their terms longer.
SJR 39, prefiled Dec. 19, calls for representatives to be elected every four years instead of every other year, and be eligible for three four-year terms.
Senators, currently elected every four years would be eligible to serve two six-year terms under Clemens' proposal.
Clemens was first elected to the Senate in 2002 and is coming to the end of his time under the current limit of two four-year terms.

BJ Marsh wants to change them also. Funny how when the dems were in control, the republicans were all for term limits, now that the shoe is on the other foot, the situation is reversed.

ah, the power of the incumbency!

Here's an idea, anyone receiving any public funds or funding, can only receive such funding for eight years.

Once they get a taste of that good easy money and a little prestige, they sure hate the thoughts of not being there. Doesn't matter what kind of a job they do, they just want that money.
