Term Limits Reform Gets Backing from ex-GOP Governor Wilson, ex-GOP State Senator Leader Brulte
At yesterday's entertaining PPIC forum on improving the legislature, reforming term limits got support from two unexpected movers and shakers: former Governor Pete Wilson and former Republican State Senate leader Jim Brulte. They, along with former Assembly Speaker Willie Brown and former Democratic Senate President pro Tem John Burton, all threw their support behind efforts to reform term limits as a way to cure what they believed was a "dysfunctional" legislature.
Senator Brulte spoke strongly in favor of Prop 93, the term limit reform initiative, saying it was essential to improve legislative performance. And Governor Wilson kicked off the session by talking about the need for legislators to cross party lines and building relationships -- something that's become more difficult as legislators spend more time politicking than policy making.
The endorsements are welcome good news for the Yes on 93 campaign. Polls have continued to show strong support for the initiative among Republicans.
Former Gov. Gray Davis endorsed Prop 93 last month in an appearance before the Sacramento Press Club.
