Radio Ad Campaign Defends Ohio Term Limits, Though No Vote On Changes Imminent

A group that supports maintaining current term limits in Ohio is airing radio spots warning against an impending vote by state lawmakers to extend term limits - only no such vote is imminent. A group called U.S. Term Limits is airing the ads in Columbus and other Ohio cities. They reference "politicians in Columbus" seeking to neutralize current term limits, which restrict state senators and representatives to eight consecutive years in either chamber. Legislative spokespersons confirm no bill extending term limits is before either the House or Senate. The Ohio Constitutional Modernization Commission is considering a pair of proposals that would extend  term limits to 12 years. No votes are scheduled.
