Term limits

It's your call

October 25, 1991

In recent weeks there has been a renewed call for limits on the number of terms a member of Congress may serve. The issue resurfaced during the furor over the Senate Judiciary Committee's handling of the Clarence Thomas nomination, which some critics say exemplified an "old boys club" mentality.

Currently, U.S. senators may serve an unlimited number of six-year terms, and members of the House of Representatives may serve an unlimited number of two-year terms.

The Evening Sun wants to know whether you think members of Congress should be restricted by term limits.
