Calls on Congressman Max Rose to Do the Same

Nicole Malliotakis, the New York State Assemblywoman (64th AD-SI/Bklyn) and Republican candidate for Congress (NY-11), announced that she had signed the U.S. Term Limits (USTL) pledge committing, that when elected to the U.S. Congress, she will co-sponsor existing bipartisan legislation (HJR 20) that limits the terms that member of the House and Senate can serve and she called on her opponent, Congressman Max Rose, to do the same.

U.S. Term Limits (USTL) is the leader in the non-partisan national movement to limit terms for elected officials. The U.S. Term Limits amendment pledge is provided to every announced candidate for federal office. It reads, “I pledge that as a member of Congress, I will cosponsor and vote for the U.S. Term Limits amendment of 3 House terms and 2 Senate terms and no longer limit.”

The U.S. Term Limits constitutional amendment has been introduced in both the U.S. Senate (SJR 1) and the U.S. House by Representatives (HJR 20) and currently has 70 pledge signers split between the 2 legislative bodies. The term limits amendment resolutions will require a two-thirds majority in the House and Senate, and ratification by 38 states, in order to become part of the U.S. Constitution.

Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis said, “When my 5th term in the New York State Assembly draws to a close at the end of 2020, I will be voluntarily leaving the state legislature to hopefully take on a new challenge of representing Staten Island and Southern Brooklyn in the U.S. Congress.

“After 10 years, it will be time for someone new to take up the fight in Albany as I bring my advocacy, ideas and principles to Washington. I believe term limits are important to bring new energy and a fresh perspective to governing. Therefore I pledge to co-sponsor existing bi-partisan legislation to impose term limits on the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives and I call on my opponent, Congressman Max Rose, to do the same.”
