Daugaard Supports Longer Term Limits

February 8, 2014, 7:08 AM by Perry Groten

Daugaard Supports Longer Term Limits
PIERRE, SD -

South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard says he likely would vote for a proposed constitutional amendment that would extend the term limits that apply to state lawmakers.  

Senate and House members can serve no more than four consecutive terms in a chamber, for a total of eight years. But a lawmaker can run for another chamber after being term-limited in one.  

The Legislature is considering a proposed constitutional amendment that would extend term limits to six two-year terms, or 12 consecutive years in a chamber. If the Legislature passes it, the proposal would be put to a statewide public vote in November.  

Daugaard says current term limits don't give lawmakers enough time to learn about issues. He says it also forces lawmakers to seek leadership positions when they are inexperienced newcomers.
