The South Dakota House has endorsed 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 two-year 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 House voted 54-16 to approve extending those limits to six two-year terms, or a total of 12 consecutive years in a chamber. The measure next goes to the Senate.
The measure is a proposed amendment to the South Dakota Constitution. If the Legislature passes it, the proposal will be put to a statewide public vote on the November ballot.
