State Sen. Greg Dolezal, R-Cumming, will propose a constitutional amendment creating a term limit for Georgia’s lieutenant governor position.
Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan said in a statement Thursday that he supports the idea.
“The Office of Lt. Governor is no place for academic tenure,” Duncan said. “Individuals elected to this office should focus solely on serving Georgians, and no Lt. Governor should consider this post a permanent home.”
The proposal would limit the lieutenant governor to two consecutive four-year terms. There are not currently term limits on the position.
