Senator Brogdon Comments on Term Limits Bill
State Sen. Randy Brogdon, who authored the amendment to send a term limits proposal to a vote of the people, commented on criticism of the proposal by Attorney General Drew Edmondson.
“Contrary to claims made by the attorney general, it is not the intent nor is it the effect of the amendment to SB 1987 to retroactively apply term limits to current officeholders.
“Furthermore, General Edmondson’s stated practice is to avoid commenting on pending legislation. It is very disappointing that in this case he is deviating from his usual practice,” stated Brogdon, R-Owasso.
Note to editor: Brogdon’s amendment was attached to Senate Bill 1987. It limits statewide officeholders to 12 years of service. Term limits already apply to the governor and the Legislature.
