Congressman Mike Gallagher Introduces Term Limits Bill to the 115th Congress
Washington, D.C. – Today Congressman Mike Gallagher introduced a bill to impose term limits on members of Congress. This is the first of several reforms that Rep. Gallagher pledged to make in his first 100 days of Congress
“I’m holding true to my commitment to bring some Wisconsin common sense to Washington DC and change the way business gets done. Imposing term limits is just the first of a number of measures I will introduce in my first 100 days in office to clean up Congress,” Rep. Gallagher said. “Congress should not be a career; rather, individuals should serve for a time, doing everything they can to work together to fix problems before returning home to civilian life. Our government should be for the people and by the people, and with that as our guiding principle, term limits are something that both sides of the aisle should be able to agree on and unite behind,” Rep. Gallagher concluded.
This joint resolution strictly applies to members who took office after the conclusion of the 114th Congress, and grandfathers in members who began their service prior to that time.
