Rep. Charles Perry says bill would hurt West Texas
AUSTIN — Forget term limits for statewide officials.
The Texas House of Representatives on Wednesday, May 15, rejected a constitutional amendment that would have asked Texas voters to approve term limits for the governor, the lieutenant governor and four other statewide officials.
By an 80-61 vote the 150-member chamber killed Senate Joint Resolution 13, the measure that would have limited the six officials to two terms. The four other positions were the attorney general, the comptroller, the land commissioner and the secretary of state.
