IN BRIEF / The State / SACRAMENTO

Term limits proposal qualifies for ballot

September 05, 2007|From Times staff and wire reports

An initiative that would ask voters to extend the stay of sitting lawmakers but truncate the overall terms of future state legislators qualified Tuesday for the Feb. 5 ballot.

The measure, backed financially by the California Teachers Assn. and other major unions and corporations, would shorten the time legislators can serve from 14 to 12 years but allow them to serve all that time in one house.

Lawmakers already in office could remain until they had served 12 years in their current house.
