ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says he will propose term limits for state legislators.
The Republican governor made the announcement Tuesday, a day before lawmakers gather for their annual 90-day legislative session.
Hogan’s proposal would limit state lawmakers to two consecutive four-year terms. The governor is making the proposal in an election year, before a legislature that is controlled by Democrats.
Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller has been Senate president since 1987. He is the longest-serving Senate president in the history of the nation. House Speaker Michael Busch has been speaker since 1987. He is the longest-serving Maryland House speaker in state history.
Hogan, who is limited to two terms, says his proposal isn’t aimed specifically at them. He says he has long supported term limits.
