TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A Kansas Senate committee is preparing to consider term limits for some elected officials, including several statewide officeholders.

Four proposals on the topic were scheduled for hearings Tuesday before the Senate Ethics, Elections and Local Government Committee.

One proposal would limit the state treasurer and insurance commissioner to three consecutive four-year terms. Another measure would limit the attorney general and secretary of state to two four-year terms.

Members of Congress from Kansas would be limited to 12 consecutive years per chamber _ two straight terms of six years in the U.S. Senate, or six terms of two years each in the House.

In the Legislature, Kansas House members would be limited to four two-year terms in a lifetime, while senators could serve a maximum of two four-year terms.
