Sagadahoc County Republican Committee Unanimously Passes Term Limits for Congress Resolution
Topsham, Maine – On April 5, 2022, the Sagadahoc County Republican Committee unanimously passed a resolution calling on the Maine legislature to pass an Article V application to propose a Term Limits Amendment for members of the U.S. House and Senate.
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 the amendment. The resolution passed by the Sagadahoc County Republican Committee endorses the effort to propose a Congressional Term Limits Amendment being spearheaded by the nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, U.S. Term Limits.
Kenn Quinn, Northern Regional Director with U.S. Term Limits who presented the resolution to the committee stated, “82% of the American people want term limits for Congress but unfortunately the members of Congress refuse to listen to the voters and propose this needed amendment, so that is why we are turning to our state legislatures to impose term limits on them without their consent. Maine needs to join with other states to finally get this done on behalf of the American people.”
Committee Chairman Guy Lebida who is a candidate running for Maine House District 98 recently signed the U.S. Term Limits Pledge which states, “I pledge that, as a member of the state legislature, I will cosponsor, vote for, and defend the resolution applying for an Article V convention for the limited purpose of enacting term limits on Congress.”
Quinn stated in regard to the candidate pledge, “The voters are tired of the dysfunction they see in Washington D.C. and the games being played by the career politicians that have been in office for decades. The American people want term limits and with support from candidates like Guy Lebida pledging to vote for our resolution, we may finally see this reform become a reality.”
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.”
