Senator Marshall Introduces TERM Act on Limits for Federal Employees

Washington, D.C. –U.S. Senator Roger Marshall introduced the Tenure Evaluation and Rotation Mandate (TERM) Act. This legislation puts a limit of 12 years on executive branch employees. This legislation aims to alleviate government bureaucracy and relinquish the power and control that life-long government employees receive behind the scenes that has run a muck and contributed to the massive inefficiencies within our federal government.  

Senator Marshall’s legislation would not impact law enforcement officers, armed service members, border patrol agents, or Department of Defense (DOD) servicemembers.

Additionally, this legislation would allow current employees who are already past 12 years of service three years to find new employment, giving them ample time to find a new job.

Senator Marshall is joined in this legislation by Senator Eric Schmitt (R-MO).

“For too long, Washington D.C. has continued the status quo to the detriment of hard-working Americans. Look at where we are today: $33 Trillion in debt and paying $900 Billion in interest annually,” Senator Marshall said. “D.C.’ beltway insiders’ and bureaucrats are entrenched in this dysfunction and wield a lot more power than they should in negotiations, often oblivious to the cost of their decisions on American taxpayers. Washington D.C. is broken, and term limits on members of Congress as well as career-unelected ‘politicos’ would be a great first step in returning the power to the people we serve.” 

“We need to return to a government that is responsible and transparent – and that begins with limiting the tenure of the executive branch’s army of bureaucrats working in the depths of the administrative state,” Senator Eric Schmitt said. “I am proud to join Senator Marshall on this important legislation.”
