President Bill Clinton signed legislation that budgeted $256.6 billion for the Department of Defense in fiscal year 1997. He described the bill, which included $11.2 billion over the president’s requests mostly for new defense systems, and a raise in military personnel salaries and off-base living allowances. He said the bill also made it a crime to cross state lines in order to stalk people.
