U.S. Term Limits (or USTL) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that lobbies for term limits for elected officials at each level of government in the United States. It is associated with the U.S. Term Limits Foundation, a 501(c)(4). Among other activities, USTL supports ballot initiatives as a way for citizens to impose term limits on elected officials. The organization was established in 1992. Since the group began, term limits have been placed on 15 state legislatures, city councils in eight of the ten largest American cities, and 37 states have placed term limits on their elected officials.[1]


As of December 2013, Philip Blumel is the organization's president.[2] New York libertarian Howard Rich is on the board of directors.
