Term Limits for Illinois

Some politicians have been able to consolidate power to such an extent that their authority exceeds what was intended in the Constitution. They answer first to special interests who fund their campaigns and think of the people after that.

Arguments in favor of term limits hold that imposing term limits would create the situation where politicians are less focused on raising money for a re-election bid, vote the interests of their constituents and are less afraid to vote in opposition to their party.
