Pelosi open to term limits for committee chairmen
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.
