Congressman Rodney Davis (IL-13) says he has not yet signed the petition that calls for limiting members of the Illinois General Assembly to eight year terms. But he says that he would.
Davis, a Republican from Taylorville, says he also backs term limits for Congress, at least in concept.
But he says he will not set a self-imposed term limit on his time in Washington.
“Unfortunately, what’s happened is there have been so many good legislators that have had self-imposed term limits and they leave, or they break their pledge,” he said. “The problems in Washington are caused by those who have been there and have no intention of ever leaving.”
He’d sign Rauner’s petition, and he’s for term limits, but not for himself?
