Dear friend,

Thank you for your interest in term limits, a simple and popular reform that offers regular rotation in office, competitive elections, access to office for citizen legislators, increased transparency and a reduction in the influence of special interests. In other words, term limits brings legislatures closer to the people.

As you may know, there is a term limits amendment bill — with cosponsors — introduced in both the U.S. House and U.S. Senate that would limit representatives to three terms (six years) and Senators to two (12 years). We have to let our Congress members know we expect action on these bills!

Here’s how you can help:

  • Sign the online petition calling for Congressional term limits. This will send a message to Congress, and will also put you in our database so we can keep you alerted to local term limits news.
  • Forward the link to the petition to your friends and family. Our goal is to send Congress a million petitions calling for term limits.
  • Distribute the USTL palm flyers at public locations and events. The simple flyer gives bullet-point benefits of term limits and sends the recipient to the USTL online petition.
  • Ask your Congress member, or candidate for Congress, to sign the USTL pledge to cosponsor and vote for the current term limits amendment bill (or a future 3/2 term limits amendment) if (re-)elected.
We need your help! Contact me anytime to see how you can get involved here in our state. Thank you.
