LIMITATION UPON GOVERNMENT ACTIONS AND SERVICE IN GOVERNMENT. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. This measure limits the terms of service of all members of government who are elected, appointed or hired to no more than eight years. It also limits the duration of existing and future statutes, codes, rules, ordinances, regulations and directives to no more than eight years. The measure further provides that its provisions have priority in any case of conflict with the constitution or any other edicts of government. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: The measure is too broad and uncertain to provide an estimate of its fiscal effects. Potential significant costs for the complete replacement of governmental officials and edicts every eight years, such as those associated with the enactment of legislation and hiring and training of employees and/or potential savings, such as those to the retirement system in terms of lower pensions occasioned by shorter terms or potential savings from government programs not continued after eight years may result.
