1997 State of the Union Address

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 1997 State of the Union Address was given by the 42nd President of the United States, Bill Clinton, on Tuesday, February 4, 1997, at 9 p.m. EST, in the chamber of the United States House of Representatives to the 105th United States Congress. It was Clinton's fourth State of the Union Address and his fifth speech to a joint session of the United States Congress. Presiding over this joint session was the House Speaker, Newt Gingrich, accompanied by Al Gore, the Vice President of the United States.

President Clinton discussed numerous topics in the address, including the environment, the International Space Station, welfare, crime and relations with NATO and China. The president also focused on a "detailed plan to balance the budget by 2002".

The Republican Party response was delivered by Oklahoma congressman J. C. Watts in front of high school students sponsored by the Close Up Foundation.[1]

Dan Glickman, the Secretary of Agriculture, served as the designated survivor.[2]

The speech was broadcast live on television and radio and lasted 1:04:21 and consisted of 6,774 words.[3]

This was the first State of the Union Address carried live on the Internet.[4]
