Kentucky Rep. William Lawrence Files Resolution to Term Limit Congress
Frankfort, KY – State representative William Lawrence has filed House Joint Resolution 66 (HJR66) for Kentucky to join the states calling for a convention for proposing a congressional term limits amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The effort is being spearheaded by the nonpartisan, nonprofit, U.S. Term Limits (USTL).
According to the latest RMG Research poll, 74% of likely voters in Kentucky support term limits on Congress, including strong support among Republicans, Democrats, and Independents alike.
HJR66 has strong support in the Kentucky legislature with several state lawmakers committing their support by signing a pledge to cosponsor Rep. Lawrence’s resolution.
“I am proud to fill this resolution. As a political outsider, I see the importance of term limits in our representation. I do not believe our forefathers ever intended for these offices to be held by career politicians.” says Rep. Lawrence.
