A proposal for term limits for Illinois constitutional officers is getting support from both sides of the political isle.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner and Governor Pat Quinn are supporting the idea.
Republican leaders from the state House and Senate have proposed an amendment to the Illinois Constitution that would limit officers such as governor, treasurer and comptroller to two terms.
In a statement issued Thursday, Quinn says he's backed term limits for years.
When asked about the issue last year, Quinn wouldn't commit to a term limit for himself.
