Series VIII. Economic Development, 1983-2000

Scope and Content Notes:

Series VIII consists of materials related to economic development. This small series contains correspondence, bills, clippings, and reports on various strategies for regional and municipal economic development. As the steel industry filtered out of western Pennsylvania in the 1980s, the state legislature sought ways to rebuild the region; some of their plans, including Regional Renaissance and Plan B, are outlined in this series. Regional Renaissance was a plan to create jobs and preserve regional assets by investing in infrastructure and regional attractions. Plan B aimed at raising funds for a new stadium and convention center. Kukovich also supported the protection of workers under legislation that would require advanced notification of plant shut-downs.
