Editorial #68 Term Limits
During my career I have moved to both extremes regarding the issue of term limits for politicians. Nebraska has a limit of two terms for state senators. The result causes a problem that is part of human nature. The second term they becomes a “lame duck” where accountability is no longer a priority. They can do anything and it will not impact their career in the legislature, often resulting in sponsoring extreme positions to gain favor with special interests groups.
