Term Limits & Tenure in the Missouri General Assembly (2007)
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The following report examines tenure and turnover in the Missouri General Assembly from just before term limits took effect through the election of 2006. The 2002 election was the fi rst since the decennial redistricting, and the first in which a large number of members were involuntarily retired due to the requirements of the constitutional amendment limiting terms of office for members of the General Assembly. The election turned out to be important for another reason— Republicans gained a majority in the House for the first time since 1954 and Republicans gained control of both chambers for the first time since 1947.
