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.
