Hillary and I would like to welcome you to the new White House web site.
It's been almost six years since we launched the very first White House web site, and seven years since we began sending and receiving e-mail at the White House. During that time, advances in computer technology and the Internet have changed the way America works, learns, and communicates. The Internet has become an integral part of America's economic, political, and social life.
With the Vice President's leadership, our Administration has helped keep America at the cutting edge of the Information Revolution. During the past seven years, we have worked to connect every classroom to the Internet, promote electronic commerce, bridge the digital divide, and increase citizen access to government by making a wide range of valuable resources available on-line through government web sites.
Americans are now using government web sites to file their taxes, compare their Medicare options, apply for student loans, and find good jobs. They're tapping into the latest health research, browsing through collections in the Library of Congress, and following NASA's missions in outer space.
As one of the most popular web sites on the Internet, Welcome to the White House provides its millions of visitors with an array of useful information, including facts about the Presidency, the history of the White House, a record of our nation's progress, a special children's site, and access to agencies and services throughout the federal government.
We hope you will explore the many resources available to you through this web site, and learn more about the work of the Clinton-Gore Administration and the White House.
President Bill Clinton
