(Carson City, NV) – Term limits don’t apply to every officeholder in the state.  The term-limit amendment to the Nevada constitution was approved by voters more than 15 years ago, but a ruling from the Nevada Supreme Court only now clarifies what the wording has said all along. It comes in the case of a Fallon man who had argued that District Attorneys are prohibited from holding office longer than 12 years. Justices say the amendment only applies to state officeholders, like members of the State Legislature or statewide electeds from the Governor to the State Treasurer – and not to county officeholders, such as District Attorneys or Sheriffs.
