Economy Act, 1933

   Passed on 20 March 1933, the Economy Act was outlined by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in his second message to Congress at the start of the New Deal and was passed in only two days. The act cut the pay of workers in federal government and the armed forces by 15 percent and cut spending in government departments by 25 percent. It also cut payments to veterans. The measure was intended to help balance the budget and allow spending on New Deal programs.
