When the new General Assembly comes in this month, there will be fewer experienced lawmakers due to term limits. 

Senate President Keith Faber will be returning to the House, along with Sen. Bill Seitz and former Speaker Larry Householder. Current Speaker Cliff Rosenberger says veteran members have institutional memory that answers questions.

“How did that happen? When did it happen? And why did the process start that way? And it’s tough when you don’t have it.”

But Rosenberger laments he will have fewer experienced members in this upcoming general assembly. He says because of term limits, only about a dozen of the 99 House members will be veterans.
