SECTION 1. Congress shall have the power by law to designate offices in the Executive Branch, not to exceed 50 in number, to which Members of the Senate and the House of Representatives would be eligible for nomination and appointment, regardless of the time when the office was created or the emoluments whereof were increased, without being required to vacate their offices in the Senate or the House of Representatives.
SECTION 2. Immediately after the commencement of a Congress in a year during which the term of a President begins, and in the year commencing every two years thereafter, the President shall submit en bloc a list of the names of prospective nominees, whether Members or not, to the offices designated pursuant to Section 1 hereof, to the Senate and the House of Representatives. If each House separately by a majority of its respective Members present and voting, a quorum being present, concurs in such list en bloc, the President shall nominate and, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, appoint those on such list to the designated offices. In the event of a failure of either House to give its concurrence, the President shall submit a revised list of names of prospective nominees until concurred in by the Senate and the House of Representatives.
SECTION 3. During the time that a Member of the Senate or the House or Representatives serves in the designated office, his compensation shall be at the rate provided by law for the said office. In the event such Senator or Representative ceases for any reason to serve in the designated office before the expiration of the term for which he was elected, his compensation shall be at the rate then provided by law for Senators and Representatives.
SECTION 4. The Congress shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation or rules of procedure, as relevant and proper.
