Federal Reserve Act

The Federal Reserve Act was signed by President Woodrow Wilson on December 23, 1913. The Act created the Federal Reserve System in the United States.

The Act was presented by Rep. Carter Glass from Virginia on August 29, 1913 to the House of Representatives; it passed the House on September 18, 1913 by a vote of 287-85. After some discussions and amendments the Senate passed the Act on December 19, 1913 with a vote of 54-34. One day later the House voted to disagree and insert their own bill, submitting a conference report to the senate on December 22, 1913. The House agreed to the conference report with a vote of 298-60. On December 23, 1913, the Senate agrees to the report as well with a vote of 43-25.

Major Amendments to the Act have been made over the years regarding emergency advances to groups of member banks and individual member banks, the creation of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), prohibition of participation by state member banks in lotteries, monetary policy objectives, pricing of services related to the Monetary Control Act, annual independent audits of the Federal Reserve Banks and Board, foreign banking business, and relations & restrictions with affiliates.

More information on the Federal Reserve Act can be found on the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System’s webpage.
