NEW YORK (Reuters) -New York Governor Kathy Hochul will propose a state constitutional amendment that would impose a term limit on governors and other high-ranking officials, her office said on Monday.

The proposal, which Hochul will detail in her first State of the State address on Wednesday, would limit governors to two four-year terms.

Hochul succeeded Andrew Cuomo in November when he resigned in the wake of a report from the state attorney accusing him of sexual harassment and other transgressions. When he stepped down, Cuomo was serving his third term as governor.

The news was first reported by the New York Times.

But the panel’s leaders also probed whether Republicans in otherwise promising states would seek to impede a revised Democratic primary calendar.
