REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
Sm: This is a report on a modification of the Code of Fair omnpe-
tition for the Construction Industry which was approved by you on
January 31, 1934.
The effect of this amendment, modifying the powers and duties of
the Construction Code Authority, will be to give the Construction
Code Authority power to administer the Construction Code in any
branch of the Industry for which no Divisional Code Authority shall
have been established.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said modifi-
cation of said Code having found as herein set forth and on the
basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) The modification of said Code and the Code as Modified 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 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 industries, by avoiding undue restriction 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 unemxploy-
ment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabiiltat-
(b) The Code as modified complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limi-
tation sub-section (a) of Section 3, sub-section (a) of Section 7 and
sub-section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said modification on behalf of the Industry as a whole.
(d) The modification and the Code as modified are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The modification and the Code as modified 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 this modification has been approved.
