Texas Senate passes term limits constitutional amendment

Tuesday, March 19, 2013 - 11:37pm

Governor Rick Perry's days leading the state of Texas could be numbered.

Tuesday, the Texas Senate passed a constitutional amendment limiting certain office holders to two consecutive terms.

Perry is now currently serving his third term as governor.

This would also apply to the seats of the lieutenant governor, secretary of state, and attorney general, among others.

This does not mean someone like Perry couldn't sit out one term, then run for office again.

The bill now goes to the Texas State House.

If they pass it, it will go up for a vote on the November ballot.
