President Clinton signs Public Law 103-199

In 1993, a bipartisan bill was introduced by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), Rep. Robert Toricelli (D-NJ), Sen. Claiborne Pell (D-RI) and Sen. Jesse Helms (R-NC) to establish a foundation that would educate the American public about the crimes of communism and honor the memory of more than 100,000,000 victims of communism around the world. The law was unanimously passed by Congress and signed into law by President Bill Clinton.
