The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Seth McLaugh­lin

In­com­ing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sig­naled Thurs­day she is open to term lim­its for com­mit­tee chair­man, say­ing mem­bers of the Demo­cratic cau­cus, in­clud­ing in­com­ing fresh­man, have been clam­or­ing for the rule change.

Asked about re­ports that she was warm­ing to the idea of term-lim­it­ing com­mit­tee chair­man, Mrs. Pelosi told re­porters dur­ing her weekly briefing on Capi­tol Hill that she is will­ing to go along with what­ever the cau­cus de­cides.

“That is a mat­ter be­fore the cau­cus,” the Cal­i­for­nia Demo­crat said. “I have al­ways been sym­pa­thetic to the con­cerns ex­pressed by our mem­bers on that sub­ject.”

Mem­bers of the Con­gres­sional Black Cau­cus and vet­eran law­mak­ers op­pose the change.
