ELECTIONS. TERM LIMITS DECLARATIONS FOR CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATES. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Permits candidates to voluntarily sign non-binding declaration of intention to serve no more than three terms in United States House of Representatives or two terms in United States Senate, or to declare their choice not to so limit their terms. Requires placement of information on ballots and state-sponsored voter education materials when authorized by candidates. Candidates may appear on official ballot without submitting either declaration. If candidate declaring term limits wins election, his/her declaration applies to future elections for same office. Calculation of terms excludes service prior to 1999. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: Measure would result in probably minor costs for Secretary of State to prepare and collect candidate declarations regarding term limits. Measure would also result in probably minor costs to counties to add statements to ballots regarding term limits.
