Governor Quinn Statement on New Proposal to Enact Term Limits for Constitutional Officers

MARION – Governor Pat Quinn today issued the following statement on a new proposal – sponsored by Leader Durkin and Leader Radogno – to enact term limits for constitutional officers in Illinois:

"I support this proposed constitutional amendment and have supported term limits since 1994.

"Constitutional amendments have long allowed the power of the people to translate into positive reform for Illinois government. I led the charge to establish term limits for legislators through constitutional amendment in 1994; I successfully established recall for the office of Governor through constitutional amendment in 2010; and I spearheaded the successful effort to reduce the size of the House by constitutional amendment in 1980.

"I hope voters have the chance to consider this constitutional amendment on the ballot."
