Daines: Term Limits Will Hold Members of Congress Accountable

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today joined his Senate colleagues in supporting a constitutional amendment limiting senators to serving two terms and representatives to three.

“Too often, career politicians lose sight of why they are in Washington, D.C. and who they are there to serve. When politicians become more focused on looking out for their own self-interest instead of the needs of their constituents, it’s time for things to change,” Daines said. “Term limits will help ensure that the government is accountable to the people and bring new voices with fresh ideas to the Capitol.”
