Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who led the push to extend term limits for city lawmakers, says he will vote next week to roll back the law to its original incarnation.

The term limits issue is one of two questions that will appear on the back of the November 2 ballot for New York City voters. If the measure passes, the law will roll back and limit future city lawmakers to serving two, consecutive four-year terms. If the measure fails, the current limit of three terms, will stand.
