The effect. of thle amnendmeint to Article III is to permit the Con-
struction Code Auth~ority, subject to proper budgetary control, to
pay a ~prolper and- adlequlate compensation to the Chiairman of the
National C'onstruction Planning andi Adjustment Board. This

obs~tructions to the free flow of mntersate and foreign commerce

the general we~lfure by prmot~ing the organization of industry
for thle pulrpose of coop~erat~ive action of labor and management
unmder adequa~tle g~overnmnental sanction andl supervision; by eliminat-
ing unfair competitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible
utilization of the present productive capacity of industries, by avoid-
ing uindue restriction of production (except as mnay be temporarily
requiredd, by increasing the consuimption of industrial and agricul-
tulral pl~roducts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing
and~ relirving uinemployment. by ;improvmgn standards of labor, and
by othecrw~ise rehabilitating industry.
(b) Thell Cotle as amnendied complies in all respects wfith the pert~i-
nront provision of said Title of saidl Act, includnwihulmt-
tiion rCub1ct~io~n (a) of Section. 3, ~Subsec~tion (a) of Section 7 and
Subsel~c~itionr (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) Thec Cod~e emp~owers the Code Authorit~y to present the afore-
:aid ametndment on behalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) Thle Cotle as amncnled~ is not designsed' to and wljill not permit
monop~olies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The amendment. and thle Code as amended are not designed
to and w~ill not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic. process have
not been deprived of the right to be heard prior t~o approval of
For these reasons, therefore the National Industrial Recovery
Board has approved said amenJment to said Code of Fair Competi-
tion for the Construction Industry.
