William Floyd "Bill" Clinger, Jr. (born April 4, 1929) was a Republican member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Pennsylvania.

Clinger was born in Warren, Pennsylvania. He attended the public schools there and graduated from The Hill School, Pottstown, Pennsylvania in 1947. He received a B.A. from The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland in 1951, and an LL.B. from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1965. Clinger served in the United States Navy as a lieutenant from 1951 to 1955. He was a delegate to the Pennsylvania state constitutional convention, 1967 to 1968, and the Republican National Convention in 1972.

Clinger was associated with the New Process Co. of Warren, Pennsylvania from 1955 to 1962, was admitted to the Pennsylvania bar in 1965, and was a lawyer in private practice. He was elected as a Republican to the 96th and to the eight succeeding Congresses (January 3, 1979 to January 3, 1997). While in the House of Representatives, he was chairman of the United States House Committee on Government Reform and Oversight in the 104th Congress, which was quite active in investigating the Travelgate and Filegate matters. He was not a candidate for re-election to the 105th Congress in 1996.

With Senator William Cohen, Clinger co-authored the Information Technology Management Reform Act, also known as the Clinger-Cohen Act.
