City Council Shelves Term Limit Measure

IN BRIEF / LOS ANGELES

December 12, 2001|From Times Staff Reports

The Los Angeles City Council ended its attempts Tuesday to overturn a mayoral veto of a ballot measure aimed at relaxing term limits on local politicians.

The council had tried 11 days ago to override Mayor James K. Hahn's veto but failed to gather the votes necessary.

On Tuesday, council members agreed to shelve the matter, which would have allowed elected officials to serve three terms of four years each, rather than the two terms allowed under current law.

Hahn had opposed the council ballot proposal because he believed it was too soon to change the voter-approved term limit law adopted eight years ago.
