Trigg County Republican Committee Passes Term Limits for Congress Resolution
Cadiz, KY – On November 9, 2023, the Trigg County Republican Committee passed a resolution calling on the Kentucky 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 U.S. Constitution 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 Trigg County Republican Committee endorses the effort to propose a Congressional Term Limits Amendment being spearheaded by the nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, U.S. Term Limits.
Rachel McCubbin, State Chair for U.S. Term Limits, commented on the resolution saying, “Politicians in Washington DC need to be reminded who is in charge of our Republic— the people. Serving the people is not intended to be a career or, worse, a way to build wealth. It’s about public service, new ideas, and a citizen led government. I want to thank the patriots in Trigg County for endorsing the Term Limits movement and look forward to having Kentucky sign on to an Article V convention!”
According to the latest nationwide poll on term limits conducted by Pew Research, term limits enjoy wide bipartisan support. Pew’s analysis states, “An overwhelming majority of adults (87%) favor limiting the number of terms that members of Congress are allowed to serve. This includes a majority 56% who strongly favor this proposal, just 12% are opposed.”
