Bruce Rauner Submits Term Limits Petition
"We have career politicians who are fundamentally corrupt and engage in cronyism, patronage, and failing the people of our state. We have to dramatically change that culture" said Rauner.
If the signatures all pan out, voters will have the final say on whether lawmakers should have term limits. If they approve the measure in November, it would limit state lawmakers to eight years in the legislature, raise the level to override a governor's veto from three-fifths to two-thirds, and change the number of House and Senate districts.
