Dear friend of term limits,
Thank you for your interest in term limits, a simple and popular reform that offers regular rotation in office, competitive elections, access to office for citizen legislators, increased transparency and a reduction in the influence of special interests. In other words, term limits brings legislatures closer to the people.
As you may know, there is a term limits amendment bill — with cosponsors — introduced in both the U.S. House and U.S. Senate that would limit representatives to three terms (six years) and Senators to two (12 years). We have to let our Congress members know we expect action on these bills!
Here’s how you can help:
- Sign the online petition calling for Congressional term limits. This will send a message to Congress, and will also put you in our database so we can keep you alerted to local term limits news.
- Forward the link to the petition to your friends and family. Our goal is to send Congress a million petitions calling for term limits.
- Distribute the USTL palm flyers at public locations and events. This small flyer includes bullet points about term limits and directs recipients to the online petition.
- Ask your local candidate for Congress to sign the USTL pledge to cosponsor and vote for the current term limits amendment bill (or a future 3/2 term limits amendment) if elected.
- Ask your U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators to cosponsor the Congressional term limits amendment bills, HJR 71 and SJ RES 11.
- Educate yourself about the movement. Become friends on our Facebook page and sign up for email updates from our national blog, No Uncertain Terms.
- Contribute to U.S. Term Limits. Founded in 1991, we are the oldest and largest national term limits organization with the experience and resources to get the job done.
- Volunteer to be the USTL contact in your state if we don’t already have one. As USTL contact, you will be in the loop on state and national term limits activism and field inquiries from new activists where you live. To discuss this, call me anytime at 561-254-8458.
