Description
Franklin D. Roosevelt’s first term as President went down in history as an example of the legislative and executive branches working in harmony to face the nation’s troubles. Among the new legislative initiatives were the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (which gave $3 billion to the states for jobless men), the Civil Works Administration (which organized winter projects for the unemployed), the Works Progress Administration (which offered public work to the unemployed), the Public Works Administration (which organized larger projects such as the building of schools, power plants, and hospitals). The National Recovery Act (NRA) called for shorter work weeks and a higher minimum wage (40 cents an hour). The Agriculture Adjustment Act began a federal program in which farmers were paid not to produce food. The Resettlement Administration offered relief to farmers who needed to refinance their mortgages. Congress passed legislation regulating the stock market to prevent the unprincipled speculation which led to the 1929 crash. The federal gold reserves were protected when FDR took the nation off the gold standard (meaning that paper money was no longer redeemable with gold from the treasury).

The public rewarded Roosevelt in the 1934 midterm elections. The Democrats won an additional ten seats in the U.S. Senate and nine seats in the U.S. House. This was the first midterm gain for the party in the White House since 1902, and it was a feat that would not be accompli
