The Montana Term Limits Initiative, also known as I-132, was on the November 5, 1996 ballot in Montana as an initiated state statute, where it was defeated. The measure would have imposed term limits on members of Congress. The measure also would have allowed candidates to pledge to support term limits and would have made note of candidates who did not support term limits next to their names on the ballot.[1][2]

Text of measure

The language that appeared on the ballot:[3]

This initiative would declare the policy of the voters of Montana to pass an amendment to the U.S. Constitution imposing term limits on members of Congress. Legislative and Congressional candidates could take a pledge to support a term limits constitutional amendment. Any candidate for congressional or state legislative office who fails to support such a term limits amendment would have the words "Disregarded Montana Voters on Term Limits" printed next to that candidate's name on the ballot. A challenge could be brought in the Montana Supreme Court to require that language to be added or removed from the ballot.
