Should Nebraska Lawmakers Add Extra Term?

Members of the Nebraska Legislature would be able to serve three terms rather than two, under a proposed constitutional amendment up for debate.

Lawmakers on Wednesday will discuss whether to allow voters to
decide in November to boost term limits from eight years to 12
years.

Nebraska senators have said repeatedly this session that current
term limits restrict the level of experience and knowledge in the
lawmaking process.

Supporters say adding an extra term would be good for the people and for the state of Nebraska.

Opponents of the plan say senators are already asking for a pay
raise starting next year and it would appear inappropriate to ask
for more money and longer terms in the same year.
