Today, Congressman George Holding (NC-02) introduced an amendment to the United States Constitution imposing term limits on Congress. The amendment would limit U.S. Senators to two six-year terms and members of the U.S. House of Representatives to six two-year terms.                  

“Since the government shutdown began, we’ve seen plenty of posturing and finger-pointing – but not much common-sense. Sadly, this is the new normal in American politics,” said Congressman Holding. “Term limits will put an end to politics-as-usual in Washington, help restore a citizen legislature, and encourage elected officials to do what’s best for their constituents, instead of special interests.”

“It’s time for elected officials to start making a difference, not a career.”

  • Congressional term limits are overwhelmingly supported by the majority of Americans. A survey conducted by McLaughlin & Associates found that 82% of voters support a Constitutional amendment imposing term limits on Congress.
