Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “Lawmakers push for term limits Constitutional amendment”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Lawmakers are once again advocating a Constitutional amendment to impose term limits on members of Congress.

Members in both chambers are backing the proposed amendment, which stipulates that House lawmakers who have served three terms would not be eligible for election to the House again, while senators who have served two terms would no longer be eligible for election or appointment to that chamber.

Under the amendment, if a House lawmaker elected to fill a vacant spot fills the vacancy for more than one year, that would count toward their three-term limit — similarly, if a senator elected or appointed to fill an empty seat fills that vacancy for over three years, that would count as one of the two allowed terms.

A number of GOP senators and dozens of House Republicans are backing the proposal, as is Democratic Rep. Jared Golden of Maine.

Even if two-thirds of both houses of Congress voted to pass the proposal, three-fourths of the states would need to back the amendment in order for it to be added the Constitution.
