Timeline of Selected New Deal Legislation

During his first two years in office, President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Congress passed programs intended to provide temporary but immediate relief to those who were struggling and restore confidence in the banks.  Roosevelt’s critics demanded he keep a balanced budget, so he was unwilling to spend more money than the government took in revenues.  Yet the Great Depression lingered.  People asked for stronger regulation, permanent aid programs, and higher spending to fund employment programs.
