NY Legislature Considering Bill To Require Term Limits For Leadership Positions

News -

When it comes to politics in Albany, the words “government reform,” “ethics reform,” and “term limits” are brought up regularly — though action to change these issues often fall flat.

But Tuesday — the New York Senate took some action and hopes the State Assembly will follow suit.

New legislation passed the senate Tuesday requiring term limits for the leadership in New York State politics.

The bill calls for eight year term limits for leadership positions.

Those positions include Temporary President of the Senate, Assembly Speaker, and Minority Leaders in both houses.

The Senate has followed voluntary leadership term limits since 2009.

The bill aiming to make it official New York State law now heads to the Assembly for consideration.
