Proposition 28 would alter the California Constitution by reducing the total number of years that a California Senate or Assembly member may serve in legislature. Currently, legislators may serve 14 years total with a a maximum of six years in the State Assembly and eight years in the State Senate. Proposition 28 would limit members to 12 years in either house with no regard to whether the years were served in the Assembly or the Senate. Legislators who are in office when the initiative goes into effect would not be be affected by the new rules.
