For some feds in "acting" roles, the curtain is about to come down. The Trump administration is about to hit a deadline that covers officials acting in jobs that are supposed to be filled by political appointment. Under the Vacancies Act of 1998, officials in acting roles have a 210-day clock before their temporary terms are cut off. The act grants incoming administrations a 90-day extension, giving them 300 days from Inauguration Day before the first tranche of acting officials trigger the terms of the law.
