The Failure of Term Limits in Florida

University Press of Florida

Chapter eight suggests that term limits have opened up opportunities for those who want to serve because of numerical turnover. However, most of the interviewees—veterans of the legislative process in Florida—conclude term limits have had a decidedly negative effect on the institution of the Legislature. The question remains as to what effect term limits have had on policy. Are we better or worse off with term limits in the legislative branch? No one has been able to claim that “better” or “improved” public policy has been the result.
