production is given, and therefore legislation by Congress for that purpose is
forbidden."—Justice Roberts, from the majority opinion in
United States v. Butler,
How did the Supreme Court react to New Deal legislation? (7 points)
It tried to limit some First New Deal programs but was more accepting of federal
government action related to the Second New Deal.
It accepted First New Deal programs as a response to the economic crisis but
made decisions that limited the Second New Deal.
It decided that most New Deal programs went beyond limits on federal power
because they took away the ability of states to regulate their own interests.
It ruled that federal intervention was allowed to supersede state interests if the
state government was unable to fund local New Deal programs.
