House approves resolution on term limits

Oklahoma City (AP) _ The Oklahoma House has given final approval to a resolution that calls for a vote of the people on whether to impose term limits on statewide offices.  The resolution passed the House Tuesday by a vote of 69-29. It previously passed the Senate and now goes to the Secretary of State.

Currently, lawmakers are limited to 12 years in office, and the governor is restricted to serving two consecutive, four-year terms.  The resolution would limit the governor to serve no more than eight cumulative years in office.  That same eight total years would apply to the lieutenantgovernor, auditor and inspector, attorney general, treasurer, commissioner of labor, superintendent of public instruction and insurance commissioner.

Corporation commissioner terms would be limited to a total of 12 years.
