Item 4 in The Republican Contract with America is also a simple one to grade.
"Limit the terms of all committee chairs."
The Republican Congress passed internal rule change 355-74 on 1/4/95. This internal rule does make some rules that limit the number of years a Congressman can chair a committee. This internal rule change is pretty liberal; however, I have to say The Repubicans fulfilled this promise.
