TERM LIMIT CHANGE MEANS STABILITY

The 2014 legislative elections were important to the business community because of the change to the state’s term limit law, which now allows a member to serve 12 years in one house.

To that end, 75% of the California Assembly seats are now occupied by either freshman or sophomore members who are eligible to serve until the middle part of the next decade. There are now six members—four Democrats and two Republicans— eligible to serve all 12 years in the Senate.
