U.S. House Rep. Mark Green Honored for Supporting Congressional Term Limits
Nashville, TN — U.S. Representative Mark Green of Tennessee’s 7th congressional district was honored for his steadfast commitment for term limits on Congress. Aaron Dukette of U.S. Term Limits (USTL), the nation’s largest pro-term limits group, presented a plaque inscribed with the verbiage of the term limits pledge Green signed. It reads, “As a member of Congress, I, Tim Burchett will cosponsor and vote for an amendment of three (3) house terms and (2) senate terms and no longer limit.”
True to his word, he cosponsored HJR 12, which is a proposal to amend the Constitution of the United States to limit the number of terms that a member of Congress may serve to six years in the house and twelve years in the senate. More than 92 members of Congress have cosponsored the joint bills. HJR 12 is sponsored by Rep. Ralph Norman of South Carolina and SJR3 is sponsored by Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.
According to the last Tennessee poll on term limits conducted by RMG Research, the issue of term limits enjoys wide bipartisan support. 78% of the respondents want term limits on Congress including 77% of Republicans, 90% of Democrats, and 71% of independents strongly approve of placing term limits on members of Congress.
