(Measure passed House, amended)

Authorizes the Librarian of Congress to designate employees of the Library of Congress as police for duty with respect to the Library buildings and adjacent streets. Requires the rank structure and pay for such employees to be the same as that for the Capitol Police.

Provides for compensating in accordance with prior law those Library employees performing police duties at the rank of private who have earned additional pay for Sunday or night work until certain conditions are met or September 30, 1989, whenever occurs first.

Requires that any pay increase for Library employees under this Act be made in four annual increments, so that parity with the Capitol Police occurs beginning with the first pay period after September 30, 1990.
