Constitutional amendment; limits on length of service in the Congress (first resolution). Limits members of the United States Senate from Virginia to two terms (12 years) and members of the House of Representatives to six terms (12 years). Service for a partial term does not preclude serving an additional 12 years. If a person switches houses, he may serve 12 years in the new house. A person may run again for the same house, after sitting out one election cycle, subject to a new 12-year limit. The limits apply to terms of service beginning on or after January 1, 1997.
