Bill for term limits on Birmingham mayor proposed

The Birmingham News reports: The mayor of Birmingham could serve no more than two full four-year terms in a row, under a bill proposed by state Rep. Juandalynn Givan, D-Birmingham.

The bill, if approved by the Legislature, would take effect starting with the municipal election in 2013.

No law now imposes term limits on the Birmingham mayor.

Current Birmingham Mayor William Bell won a two-year term in August. Elections for the mayor of Birmingham starting in 2013 will be for four-year terms. -- Read the whole story --> Bill proposed in Alabama Legislature would limit Birmingham mayor to two terms | al.com
