Age 3

This Act was to restrict the power of the President removing certain office holders without approval of the Senate. It denies the President the power to remove any executive officer who had been appointed by the president with the advice and consent of the Senate, unless the Senate approved the removal during the next full session of Congress. The Amendment was later repealed.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of various places named Worth, for example in Cheshire, Dorset, Sussex, and Kent, from Old English worð ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’. The vocabulary word probably survived into the Middle English period in the sense of a subsidiary settlement dependent on a main village, and in some cases the surname may be a topographic name derived from this use.
