A Florida Term Limit Amendment, also known as HJR 207, did not make the November 6, 2012 state ballot in Florida as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment.

The proposed amendment would have increased the terms of state senators from 4 to 6 years and the terms of state representatives from 2 to 4 years. The amendment would also have limited state senators and state representatives to serving 12 consecutive years in office.[1]

If the bill was referred to the ballot, it would have required 60 percent voter approval for adoption.
