Despite the agreement, a second, more serious investigation continues: Attorney General Letitia James sued the NRA earlier this year, accusing the organization of widespread fraud and calling for its closure. The NRA negotiated specific sets of codes with the leaders of the country`s major industries; the main provisions were deflationary floors, under which no company would reduce prices or wages, and agreements to maintain employment and production. In a remarkably short period of time, the NRA has secured agreements from almost every major industry in the country. According to some conservative economists, the NRA has increased the cost of activity by forty percent.  Donald Richberg, who quickly replaced Johnson as head of the NRA, said: «The UN has not seen success in negotiating a multilateral arms control agreement since the 1990s. The adoption of the treaty by an overwhelming majority of states at the UN General Assembly is a great achievement for the United Nations and for multilateralism. If the regular Conference of States Parties to the Treaty is a confession, it will underline that the debate and control of the international arms trade has firmly found a place on the multilateral agenda. (Introduction to the book Arms and International Law: The Arms Trade Treaty, 2015) As part of the First New Deal, the NRA was based on the assumption that the Great Depression was due to market instability and that state intervention was necessary to balance the interests of farmers, the economy and labour. NIRA, which created the RNA, said the public consultations were aimed at developing fair competition rules and gave the administration the power to develop voluntary agreements with industries on working time, pay rates and pricing.  The NRA was commissioned by an executive order signed on the same day as the adoption of the NIRA. In 1994, following disagreements between the NRA and athletes over control of the Olympic shooting program, the U.S. Olympic Committee recommended USA Shooting to replace the NRA as the national Olympic shooting federation. The NRA withdrew shortly before the decision was announced and cited a lack of esteem for its efforts.
 The agreement is separate and apart from James` lawsuit against the NRA, which is also ongoing.
