MS Waste Management and Clean-up 1979-1996 6 boxes

Arranged alphabetically. The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, (otherwise known as Superfund), was the first Federal law designed to address the potential environmental health hazards associated with waste sites. Cohen co-sponsored this act, and the bulk of the material in this subseries deals with Superfund initiatives that took place throughout Maine. Files related to how and where trash is transported, processed, recycled and disposed (flow-control legislation) are also found in this series. Cohen supported the Flow Control Act of 1995 (S. 3998), as well as 1995 amendments to the Solid Waste Disposal Act (S. 534).

Records include reports and correspondence from the EPA, the Maine Municipal Association, and the Eastern Maine Development Corporation, as well as copies of bills, briefing memos, news clippings, CRS reports, and "Dear Colleague" letters.

Access to records in this sub series is restricted until 2017. Consult the Special Collections Department for further information.
