Newaygo County Republican Party Passes Term Limits for Congress Resolution
Fremont, MI – On June 2, 2022, the Newaygo County Republican Party passed a resolution calling on the Michigan legislature to pass an Article V application to propose a Term Limits Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to limit the number of terms members of the U.S. House and Senate can serve.
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 requiring Congress to call a convention for the purpose of proposing the amendment. The resolution passed by the Newaygo County Republican Party endorses the effort to propose a Congressional Term Limits Amendment being spearheaded by the nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, U.S. Term Limits.
Jeff Tillman, Deputy Field Director for U.S. Term Limits, commented on the resolution saying, “It is the Constitutional obligation of the state legislatures to control a runaway Congress. Federal lawmakers will not propose term limits on themselves. The people of Newaygo County have been clear that they want term limits on Congress, which is why we are delighted to see the Newaygo County Republican Party pass this resolution.”
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.”
