Senate enacts term limits for its leadership

State Sen. Dale Righter (R-Mattoon) issued the following statement Jan. 11 after the Senate adopted Senate Resolution 3, which enacts term limits of 10 years on the offices of Senate President and Senate Minority Leader.

“This is a good step and another show of bipartisan compromise in the Senate that will help move Illinois forward,” Righter said. “We need the House, particularly Speaker Madigan, to follow suit.”
