Summary:
Constitutional amendment; limits on length of service in the General Assembly (first resolution). Limits members of the Senate to three terms (12 years) and members of the House of Delegates 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 at the 1996 Regular Session.
