Term Limits by Mind Map: Term Limits

1. Members of the House of Representatives shall be limited to no more than two consecutive terms. After two terms the member must return to and live in the district which they represented for at least one term. At the completion of the "home" term, the member may seek re-election in that or any other district. Members of the House of Representatives may not seek election to the Senate during their home term.

1.1. Members of the House of Representatives shall be limited to twenty (20) years of total service in the House. Home term time is not considered for total service, only active service in the House. If a member of the House who is first elected to the House, is later elected to the Senate, the twenty (20) years service limit remains, though six years will be deducted for that term and the member must abide a home term of six years after the first and subsequent terms in the Senate.

1.2. A member of the House of Representatives may seek election to the Senate after the first term in any two-term cycle. However, the period of service in the Senate counts against the twenty (20) year service total, and the (now) Senator must complete a six year home term before seeking either re-election to the Senate or the House of Representatives.
