LANSING (WKZO) -- State Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville wants to make a change to the term limits that are in place for elected officials in Michigan.  The Republican from Monroe has a plan that will exempt all current elected officials and allow in the future for someone to be elected beyond the current limits if they can collect the same number of petition signatures needed for a recall.

Richardville tells MIRSNews.com it's a "reasonable request" and involves the participation of voters.  He adds that he's opposed to a proposal to turn the Legislature into a part-time body, saying Michigan doesn't have strong enough county or lower levels of government to provide proper representation of people.
