Series III. Environment and Transportation, 1981-2004

Scope and Content Notes:

Series III contains materials related to environmental and transportation issues. Beginning in the late 1990s, Kukovich was actively involved in the fight to have Pittsburgh selected from among several candidates to receive funding for a high speed magnetic rail system by Maglev Corporation. This series includes studies and reports that cover this planning process. The remainder of the series focuses primarily on environmental issues supported by the Congressman, including the Clean Air Act and renewable energy. Of interest is Kukovich's stance on emissions testing because it placed two issues of importance to him in conflict: though he supported the environmental aspects of the bill, he ultimately opposed it because of the burden it placed on the consumer.
