Senate Passes 10 Year Term for Librarian of Congress

Okay, this one’s just weird

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 10-year term on the position, stripping the job of the lifetime tenure it has carried since 1802.

They set up a limit on how many years someone can hold a job as a librarian? Really?
