Senators are currently limited to two consecutive four year terms. Senator Tom Carlson is proposing a constitutional amendment upping the limit to three straight four year terms.
A public hearing on the bill is scheduled for this afternoon at the State Capitol.
At least 22 lawmakers support the measure with 15 Republicans, six Democrats, and one independent backing the plan.
30 votes are needed put the measure on the November ballot.
One lawmaker who is not biting: Speaker of the Legislature Mike Flood who is term limited at the end of this year.
Flood spoke with Nebraska Watchdog’s Joe Jordan.
