The Illinois Term Limits for Legislators Amendment may appear on the November 4, 2014 ballot in Illinois as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure would establish eight-year term limits for legislators, reduce the size of the Senate from 59 to 41, increase the size of the House from 118 to 123, and require a two-thirds majority vote in both houses for the legislature to override a governor’s veto.[1]

Currently, the measure is in circulation and supporters claim to have obtained more than half of the signatures required thus far.[1]
