Early legislation focuses on term limits, campaign finance

HARTFORD, Conn. – With less than a month before the start of the 2015 legislative session, lawmakers have begun filing bills on topics ranging from new term limits for public officials to changes in the state’s public-funded campaign program.

The new legislative session will begin on Jan. 7 as Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is inaugurated for a second term. Among the 30 bills that had already been filed Wednesday morning is a piece of legislation to change the state constitution to ensure Malloy’s second term is his last.

Malloy, who only just won re-election last month, has not indicated whether he intends to seek a third term in four years. But a bill proposed by Cromwell Republican Rep. Christie Carpino, would amend the constitution to prohibit any governor from serving more than two terms.

    Term limits for all state elected officials would be wonderful. No more than 2 terms.

    The bill that proposes term limits (2 consecutive terms) for state legislators also increases their term to 4 years. Might not be a bad idea.
