Called the “Lame
Duck Amendment” because it gave “lame duck” officials (those who were
not going to be sworn in, but were still in office) a shorter period of
time to pass laws that tended to enrich their lives or the lives of their
friends and political allies.
inauguration day (when he/she is sworn in)
moved back from March 4 to January 20.
Congress are now sworn into office on January 3 instead of March
4 of odd numbered years.
