Wyoming Supreme Court To Hear Term Limits Case

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Supreme Court is set to hear arguments Wednesday in a lawsuit brought by Secretary of State Max Maxfield challenging term limits for himself and other statewide elected officials.

Maxfield says the state law barring him and other statewide elected officials from serving more than two consecutive terms is unconstitutional. He’s now in his second term and filed the case last year as a private citizen.

The high court in 2004 rejected term limits for state legislators. It ruled that the Wyoming Constitution sets requirements for state office so they may only be changed by amendment, not by state law. Maxfield says the same principle should apply to statewide elected officials.

Wyoming Attorney General Greg Phillips will argue to defend the term limits law.
