SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- On Tuesday, Senate GOP Leader Christine Radogno argued that limiting the Governor and other top officials to two terms in office would allow for fresh ideas.
"Sometimes we have good and useful people who feel they cannot possibly overcome the disadvantage of incumbency," said Radogno. "This discourages people who are well qualified from running."
However, Democrats on the Senate subcommittee voted down the proposal 2-1.
There is still an amendment limiting terms in the legislature that could be voted on.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner said he will turn in enough signatures to get the issue on the November ballot.
