PURVIS, MS (WDAM) -

Congressman Steven Palazzo introduced a bill this week which would limit members of the House of Representatives to six terms and members of the Senate to two terms. 

Palazzo (R-Dist. 4) said the legislation would send lawmakers back home to live by the laws they pass.

"The perfect reason why we need term limits is (Congress is) putting their own special interests, their own personal interests ahead of what the people want and I think across America, there's a lot of frustration, people are fed up and if Congress doesn't do it, we may see the states do it for us," Palazzo said.  

He was in Purvis Friday, speaking at a monthly law enforcement officers luncheon.
