    NTIS order #PB90-254152

    In 1988, prompted by the many national studies calling for more investment in

    public works infrastructure, Congress asked the Office of Technology Assessment

    (OTA) to evaluate how technologies, management, and financing could improve

    public works and make them more efficient and productive. From the outset,

    OTA planned to review State and local public works management and finance to

    spotlight issues that needed attention. The review produced so much practical

    and useful information that a decision was made to publish the results early in

    1990 for use by the 101st Congress in this special report. Several intertwined

    issues quickly came to dominate OTA's discussions with State and local public

    works officials. As this report documents, the concerns centered on how to raise

    more money for upgrading and maintaining public works, how to enhance public

    works, and how to preserve the community environment and quality of life. Local

    officials focused on the complex tasks of resolving conflicts among these issues

    in a controversy-ridden and politically charged arena. State representatives

    highlighted the steps they have already taken to increase support for

    localities. This special report also outlines the roles of Federal, State, and

    local governments and points to avenues for strengthening the intergovernmental

    structure for managing and financing public works. The link in this record
