TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Four proposals to limit the terms of some elected Kansas officials are drawing little interest.

No one testified for or against the measures Tuesday before the Senate Ethics, Elections and Local Government Committee.

The proposals would place limits on state legislators, members of the Kansas delegation to the U.S. House and Senate, as well as the state treasurer, attorney general, secretary of state and commissioner of insurance.

Currently only the governor is limited to two consecutive four-year terms in office.

Sen. Dennis Pyle, a Hiawatha Republican and chairman of the committee, said he didn't know if or when the bills would be taken up again. They will be available for debate and discussion for the next two legislative sessions.
