2022 House Joint Resolution T: Adopt unicameral legislature; extend term limits
Introduced by Rep. Jeff Yaroch (R) on May 18, 2022
To place before voters in the next general election a Constitutional amendment to establish a nonpartisan unicameral legislature (instead of a separate House and Senate) with 110 districts. Also, to extend legislative term limits, currently three two-year terms for state representatives (six years total) and two four-years for state senators (eight years total), to four four-year terms for all legislators (16 years total). Under this system voters would only see the names of candidates on their ballots, with no indication of their political leanings like those currently provided by party identifications on the ballot.   Official Text and Analysis.
