1998 A YEAR OF LANDMARK ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Washington, D.C. – 1998 was a year of landmark accomplishments for U.S. Rep. James A. Traficant, Jr. (D–OH).  These include the enactment into law of major taxpayer protection measures Traficant has championed for 13 years such as shifting the burden of proof in a civil tax case from the taxpayer to the IRS.  Other major accomplishments in 1998 for Traficant included securing $46 million in federal funds for transportation projects for the Mahoning Valley, bringing home $18 million in federal grant money for the continued expansion of Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport, and the emergence of Traficant as the leader of Congressional efforts to get the Clinton Administration to take tough action to curb cheap foreign steel imports.  Below is a summary of key accomplishments in 1998.
