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.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg
Introduced Would permanently extend the city's term limit from two to three terms.
