(a) Removal by President.— 
The President may remove the name of any officer from a promotion list at any time before the date on which the officer is promoted.
(b) Removal for Withholding of Senate Advice and Consent.— 
If the Senate does not give its advice and consent to the appointment to the next higher grade of an officer whose name is on a list of officers approved by the President for promotion (except in the case of promotions to a reserve grade to which appointments may be made by the President alone), the name of that officer shall be removed from the list.
(c) Removal After 18 Months.— 

(1) If an officer whose name is on a list of officers approved for promotion under section 14308 (a) of this title to a grade for which appointment is required by section 12203 (a) of this title to be made by and with the advice and consent of the Senate is not appointed to that grade under such section during the officers promotion eligibility period, the officers name shall be removed from the list unless as of the end of such period the Senate has given its advice and consent to the appointment.

(2) Before the end of the promotion eligibility period with respect to an officer under paragraph (1), the President may extend that period for purposes of paragraph (1) by an additional 12 months.
(3) In this subsection, the term promotion eligibility period means, with respect to an officer whose name is on a list of officers approved for promotion under section 14308 (a) of this title to a grade for which appointment is required by section 12203 (a) of this title to be made by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, the period beginning on the date on which the list is so approved and ending on the first day of the eighteenth month following the month during which the list is so approved.
