On Wednesday(January 11th), Attorney General Steve Bullock released an opinion concerning Montana's term limits. The opinion allows Montana candidates that have not finished their mandated eight-year break from politics to file for office, but only if they will have completed an eight-year break for every 16-years of service by the time they take office again. Opinions by the Attorney General have the weight of law unless overturned by a court or made inapplicable by a change of law in the legislature.
