Comparing Proposals on Term Limits


BILL NUMBER: SPONSOR: STATUS: SUMMARY:
N/A
Councilmember Oliver Koppell
Been abandoned The bill, requested in early September, has since been abandoned, Koppell said, because it's identical to the mayor's legislation, which was proposed a month later. It would have simply increased the city's term-limit cap from two to three terms.
Intro 845
Mayor Michael Bloomberg
Introduced Would permanently extend the city's term limit from two to three terms.
Not assigned yet, text available here
Councilmembers Letitia James and Bill de Blasio

Intro 850
Councilmember David Weprin
Introduced Prohibits the City Council from acting on term limits legislatively and requires any proposal on the issue be subject to a referendum.
Reso. 1640
Councilmember Tony Avella
Introduced Calls for the State Legislature to require any change in term-limit law be done by referendum.
