The Nebraska Term Limits Amendment, also known as Initiative Measure 407, was an initiated constitutional amendment on the November 3, 1992 election ballot in Nebraska, where it was approved.


In 1994, the Nebraska Supreme Court nullified the results of the vote, saying that not enough signatures had been collected to place the measure on the ballot.[1]
