Harry Reid, the majority leader of the U.S. Senate, apparently doesn't like term limits in the legislature back home. Nevada's term limits law will start flushing current legislators out of office in 2010, completing the job by 2012.
The Las Vegas Sun quotes unnamed sources as saying that Reid recently spoke with Secretary of State Ross Miller and pressed him to rule that the term limits law is unconstitutional.
[Reid spokesman] Summers said Reid continues to be concerned that special-interest lobbyists will gain more influence if veteran legislators give way to newcomers.
It's not clear what authority Miller would have to rule on term limits, but opponents of the law could cite a favorable opinion in any relevant court battle.
