REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The BWhite IHouye.
SIR: An application has been duly made pursuant to and in full
compliance with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery
Act, for an amendment to the Code of Fair Competition for the
Section 9 of Article II of Chapter I of the Construction Code
purports to enumerate the complete list of national associations
which had' complied with the provisions of that section prior to the
submi.ssion of the Code to the President for his approval, and quali-
fied as sponsors of the Code. Actually the list is defective since the
National Electrical Contractors Association had qualified, prior to
the submission of the Code to the President for his approval, as a
sponsor thereof. The purpose of this amendment is to correct this
error in order that the National Electrical Contractors Association
can designate a representative to the Construction Code Authority
immediately, in order that the Construction Code Authority may be
organized and its members approved by you in the next few days.
This action is taken with the assent of all of the sponsoring asso-
ciations of the Construction Code and their formal assent will be
obtained as soon as possible. There is therefore no objection which
will be registered against the proposed amendment and it is in my
opinion in order for you to give your approval thereto.
The Division Administrator in his final report to me on said
amendment to said Code having found as herein set forth and on
the basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) The amendment to said Code and the Code as amended are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of obstruc-
tions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend
to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general
welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose
of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and maintain-
ing united action of labor and management under adequate govern-
mental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive
practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the present
productive capacity of the industries, by avoiding undue restrictions
of production (except as may be temporarily required), by increasing
the consumption of industrial and agricultural products through
increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unem-
ployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limitation
Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) That the aforesaid amendment is necessary to correct an error
in the Code as submitted to the President for his approval.
(d) The Amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permitI monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will 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 to approval of said
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this Amendment.
