He’s talked about it, and now he’s done it. North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis (R-Mecklenburg) has filed a bill to term-limit the House Speaker and the President Pro Tempore of the Senate. Looks like two terms will be the limit under House Bill 9. If passed, the constitutional amendment would go before voters in November 2014. Kudos to any elected official willing to put a check on his/her power.
