Term Limits for Librarian of Congres

Senate Passes 10 Year Term for Librarian of Congress

Bob Warburton | October 13 2015

As President Obama ponders his choice for the next Librarian of Congress, the first time in nearly three decades that such a nomination will be necessary, the U.S. Senate has passed a bill to put a ten-year term on the position. If passed by the House and signed by the president, the bill will strip the job of the lifetime tenure it has carried since 1802.
