The following is a brief explanation of the various amendments to the Federal reserve act. It consists of two parts: Part I, which contains a discussion of the various acts which specifically amended the text of the Federal reserve act; and Part II, which contains a discussion of those acts which did not change the text of the Federal reserve act, but which in effect amended the substance of the act.


The following acts specifically amended the Federal reserve act:

ACT OF AUGUST 4, 1914.

Section 27 of the Federal reserve act as originally enacted amended section 9 of the Aldrich-Vreeland Act of May 30, 1908, by reenacting that part relating to the tax rates on national-bank notes secured otherwise than by bonds of the United States. The act of August 4, 1914, amended section 27 of the Federal reserve act so as to add to the above-named section of the Aldrich-Vreeland Act a proviso authorizing the Secretary of the Treasury to suspend the limitations imposed by sections 1, 3, and 5 of the Aldrich-Vreeland Act on the issue of such additional national-bank notes and to extend the privileges of the Aldrich-Vreeland Act to all qualified State banks and trust companies which had joined the Federal reserve system or might contract to do so within a limited time. This amendment has become inoperative by reason of the expiration by limitation on June 30, 1915, of the Aldrich-Vreeland Act.

ACT OF AUGUST 15, 1914.

Reserves. This act amended section 19 of the Federal reserve act so as to permit State banks or trust companies which were then coming into the system to continue to keep their reserves with other State banks or trust companies during three years within which the change was to be made from the old system to the Federal reserve system.

ACT OF MARCH 3, 1915. Acceptances. This act amended section 13 (paragraphs 3, 4, and 5) so as to authorize the Federal Reserve Board, in its discretion, to increase the amount of acceptances based on the importation or exportation of goods which a member bank of the system may make and which a Federal reserve bank may discount.
