KENTUCKY (WEHT) – Lawmakers are hoping to put a cap on congressional term limits, but they will need to amend the U.S. Constitution to do so.

The Kentucky House of Representatives has now filed a resolution applying for an Article V convention to make that happen. B.R. 989 is sponsored by State Representative William Lawrence.

According to termlimits.com, 15 states have passed Article V convention applications for a limited government that includes congressional term limits, but only four states have passed the term limits exclusive application.

For an amendment to become part of the U.S. Constitution, it must be ratified by 38 states.
