Bonus Act, 1936
   Passed in January 1936 over President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s veto, the Bonus Act authorized the immediate payment of the bonus due to veterans of World War I. The payment had been due to be paid in 1945, but protests from veterans, such as the Bonus Army, forced Congress to bring the payment forward.
