Senate. Comm. on the Vermont Resolutions. Report on a constitutional amendment to restrict the President to a single term, 1841
Senate No. 42 A Committee studied a Vermont resolution to amend the Constitution to limit the Presidency to one term. Indiana, Delaware, and
Kentucky concurred; their statements were at the end of the document. The Committee noted that the issue had been discussed at the original Constitutional
Convention. A second term was good with a good President, and not so good with a bad President. The Committee discussed the usual arguments at
length; it was a near letter perfect description of the situation in the United States in 2023. Resolves relating to the re-election of the President of
the United States and to the limits of the office to a term of six years. Resolved: amend the Constitution to restrict the President to one term.
Resolved: the President's term would be for six years. Resolved: the Congressional delegation would work to that end. Resolved: the Governor would
notify the other states of the resolutions. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the Library of Congress).
