North Carolina House Passes Resolution to Term Limit Congress
Raleigh, NC — The North Carolina House just passed House Joint Resolution 151 (HJR151) for term limits on Congress, sponsored by Speaker Tim Moore. The resolution would memorialize the state’s intention to participate in an amendment proposal convention to limit the time a member of Congress may hold office. The resolution, which has 31 sponsors, is being advocated by U.S. Term Limits (USTL), a national nonprofit organization advocating for term limits. 56 lawmakers in North Carolina have signed a pledge committing to support this resolution.
“The majority of Americans support the additional measure of accountability for their elected leaders in Washington,” Moore said in a news release on the resolution. “Term limits would benefit both Congress and the rest of the country by paving the way for more competitive elections. This is the one thing the states can do to rein in the federal government on both sides of the aisle.”
