In the wake of the Vito Lopez scandal in Albany some state lawmakers are pushing for limits on how long legislators can serve as leaders.
According to the Daily News, State Senator Joseph Griffo and Assemblywoman Sandra Galef want to revisit a bill that would prevent the Assembly Speaker, Senate majority leader or minority leader from serving more than 12 years.
This comes as Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver is being investigated for approving a secret, $100,000 payout to settle sexual harassment claims against Assemblyman Lopez.
Silver has served as Assembly leader for 18 years.
