Lalor and Gipson Announce Bipartisan Term Limits Bill

By Kieran Lalor, on May 9, 2013

Wappingers Falls, N.Y. – (5/9/13)  In a bipartisan effort to end corruption in Albany, State Senator Terry Gipson (D-Rhinebeck) and Assemblyman Kieran Lalor (R,C,I-Fishkill) today joined in front of the Wappinger Town Hall to introduce joint legislation that creates term limits in both the New York State Senate and Assembly. 

"Term limits are a key step in cleaning up Albany," said Assemblyman Kieran Michael Lalor. "That's why I'm excited to join Senator Gipson today to fight for this reform. Term limits will bring fresh blood and new ideas into government. We'll end the sense of entitlement and arrogance that has enabled corruption, fraud, and abuse. Lately, it seems like we've been relying on the FBI and the U.S. Attorney to term limit our politicians. Something is very wrong when you're more likely to leave Albany in handcuffs than through the ballot box. Terms limits will go a long way to changing that."
