Congressman Puts Forward Resolution To End Term Limits On Presidency

20130105-221205.jpgCongressman Jose Serrano (D-NY) put forth a House resolution that would repeal the twenty-second article of amendment to the United States Constitution on Friday. This would effectively remove term limits on the Presidency should it be ratified by three-fourths of the States. It has currently been sent to the House Judiciary Committee.

According to Govtrack, only 15% of resolutions get out of committee. Only 10% were enacted or passed in 2009-2010.

The following is the text of the resolution put forward:
