Miller and Busch: The case for term limits

Clearly, the state of Maryland is controlled by three people, the governor, the Senate president and the House of Delegates speaker ("Leaders float the idea of two special sessions," April 25). While the governor is limited to two 4-year terms, the other two can apparently serve forever.

I get a vote as to who is elected governor, but have no voice regarding who should run the Senate or the House. It is long overdue that we put term limits on these two positions. If eight years is good for the governorship, let's impose the same time on these two positions.

This change is desperately needed. Contact your representatives in Annapolis.
