Nebraska was the last state legislature to adopt term limits. In 2000, 56 percent of voters passed a two-term four year limit on members of the legislature. 

Senator Mike Friend (10) introduced LCR 5CA, a bill which will amend the number of terms for members of the legislature from two to three.  The bill has been referred to the Executive Committee, of which the sponsor is a member.  A hearing was held on February 12, however no action was taken on the bill. It has been indefinitly postponed. It is not technically dead but not likely to do anything.

Threat Level:     Postponed Indefinitly. It’s not dead but poses no imediate threat.

WHAT YOU CAN DO: Congratulate yourself, your hard work paid off
