The South Dakota Senate has killed a proposed constitutional amendment that would have extended the term limits that apply to state lawmakers.
Senators on Wednesday voted 23-12 against the measure.
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 bill would have allowed voters to support or oppose expansion of those limits to six consecutive terms or 12 years in a chamber.
Gov. Dennis Daugaard had said he would have voted for extended term limits.
