Major Legislation; the Congress and the President

The second session of the 73rd Congress, which convened January 3, 1934, adjourned sine die on June 18. Unless called into special session during the remainder of the year to deal with un for seen emergencies, this Congress will not meet again. All members of the House and 35 members of the Senate of the 74th Congress will be chosen at the polls on November 6. The new Congress will meet for its first session on January 3, 1935.

Administration measures were subjected to closer scrutiny during the second than during the first (special) session of the 73rd Congress, when the President's emergency program was put through virtually without change. Although Democrats outnumbered Republicans nearly three to one in the House and nearly two to one in the Senate, administration measures were repeatedly modified in committee, and in negotiations with the President, to assure their command of majority votes on the floor.

Leading measures enacted during the second session included:

Gold Reserve Act National Housing Act
Silver Purchase Act Indian Aid and Grazing Acts
Reciprocal Tariff Act Naval Construction Act
Revenue Act of 1934 Communications Commission Act
Securities Exchange Act Anti-Crime Legislation
Loans to Industries Act Sugar and Cotton Control Acts
Corporate and Municipal Unemployment-Drought Relief
Bankruptcy Acts Appropriation Acts
