An Argument Against Term Limits?
Posted by Dan Draney on January 23, 2006
From banning bullhook use on elephants to creating a memorial to Nebraska poets, term-limited senators introduced an average of 50 percent more bills than their colleagues this year.
Not everyone is pleased with their proposals.
Perhaps they’d do less damage if we let them stay. Like Ben Franklin, I always sleep a little sounder when the legislature is not in session. Good news: The elephant bill is going nowhere. It could have wiped out the state’s elephant-training industry.
