AN ACT proposing to create new Section 234a of the Constitution of Kentucky relating to term limitations for elected public officers.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Kentucky:
SECTION 1. IT IS PROPOSED THAT A NEW SECTION BE ADDED TO THE CONSTITUTION OF KENTUCKY TO READ AS FOLLOWS:
Section 234a. No state, district, county, or city elected officer, for which this Constitution does not impose a limitation on the number of consecutive terms which may be served, shall be eligible to serve more than twelve consecutive years in the same office; except that this limitation shall not serve to deprive an elected public officer of office prior to the expiration of a term which began before the twelve-year service limitation was reached, but the officer shall not be eligible to serve an additional term after the expiration of the term during which the twelve-year service limitation was reached.
Section 3. This amendment shall be submitted to the voters of the Commonwealth for their ratification or rejection at the time and in the manner provided for under Sections 256 and 257 of the Constitution and under KRS 118.415.
