South Dakota's Mike Rounds is the latest governor to come out in favor of eliminating legislative term limits. From the AP:
PIERRE -- A resolution that proposes a constitutional amendment to eliminate term limits for lawmakers and constitutional officers is being debated in the 2008 Legislature, and Gov. Mike Rounds says he supports part of it.
Term limits are needed for the governor and for constitutional officers, he said.
But limiting the terms for legislators has meant a loss of institutional knowledge, Rounds said.
"Term limits didn't do what people thought they would do," Rounds, who served in the state Senate for 10 years, said Monday on a Dakota News Network radio program.
