IL House ChamberOne Illinois lawmaker wants to limit the time someone can serve as the Speaker of the House or the President of the Senate.  State Representative Scott Drury has proposed a House Joint Resolution Constitutional Amendment that would limit the total number of years of service for someone to be the majority party leader of either chamber to only twelve years combined.

Drury also filed legislation last week that would prohibit the Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate from holding jobs outside of being leading legislators.
