National Recovery Administration

(NRA)
   Established under the National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA) in 1933 to administer the act and establish industrial codes to establish fair prices and fair labor practices and limit “destructive” competition, the NRA was headed by General Hugh S. Johnson and was a central element in the “First New Deal.” It used the Blue Eagle system to endorse products manufactured under the codes. The NRA approved more than 541 codes. However, the Supreme Court ruled the NIRA unconstitutional in Schechter Poultry Corp. v. United States in 1935.
