Lot 93: Booklet of the Department of Defense Appropriations Act of 1996 introduced to the House of Representatives by Florida Congressman Bill Young, 96 pages, 7.25 x 10.75, signed and inscribed at the top in blue felt tip to Young, "To Bill Young, with appreciation, Bill Clinton." In fine condition. Accompanied by an official envelope bearing Young's printed free frank, on which he has written, "Clinton, sign my bill—FY 96 Defense $$, which he let become law without his signature." President Clinton opposed the bill because it allocated more money for weapons programs than he believed necessary, but backed down from a veto threat and allowed the bill to become law without signing it after coming to an agreement with the Republicans.
