|Term Limits Initiative|
Text of measure
This amendment provides a limit of two terms for the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, Treasurer, Auditor, Attorney General and Commissioner of State Lands. It provides a limit of three terms for State Representatives, and a limit of two terms for State Senators. It also provides that persons having been elected to three or more terms as a member of the United States House of Representatives from Arkansas shall not be eligible to appear on the ballot for election to the United States House of Representatives from Arkasas. Lastly, it provides that any person having been elected to two or more terms as a member of the United States Senate from Arkansas shall not be eligible to appear on the ballot for election to the United States Senate from Arkansas.
In 1995, the United States Supreme Court ruled that the part of Amendment 73 that placed limits on members of the U.S. Congress from Arkansas was unconstitutional; however, the part of the law that placed limits on the Arkansas State Legislature were left intact.
