Term Limits and Musical Chairs

Hosted by

Term limits were enacted in 1990 to rid California of so-called "career politicians" and replace them with "citizen legislators," who would serve relatively briefly in elected positions and then return to their former lives in the private sector. A new report "Citizen Legislators or Political Musical Chairs," from the Center for Governmental Studies, says it's had almost exactly the opposite affect.
