The Johnson County GOP Calls on Legislature to Pass Term Limits Resolution
Mountain City, TN – Today, April 4th, 2022, the Johnson County Republican Party officially called on Tennessee’s legislature to pass an Article V application to propose a Term Limits Amendment for members of the U.S. House and Senate. Last November, the Johnson County Commission Board had passed a similar resolution.
In Tennessee, the state resolution is filed as House Joint Resolution 8. It is scheduled for a vote this Wednesday, April 6th, 2022 in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The effort is being spearheaded by the nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, U.S. Term Limits.
Article V of the Constitution of the United States specifies how amendments may be proposed; either two-thirds of both Houses of Congress or on the application of two-thirds of the state legislatures to force Congress to call a convention for proposing an amendment.
According to recent national polling, “82% of voters of all parties continue to support term limits, including 87% of Republicans, 83% of Democrats, and 78% of Independents.”
U.S. Term Limits is the largest grassroots term limits advocacy group in the country. We connect term limits supporters with their legislators and work to pass term limits on all elected officials, particularly on the U.S. Congress. Find out more at termlimits.org.
