He was instrumental in getting the Clean Air Act passed by the US Senate in 1990.


John Simkin describes the circumstances of Heinz' death as follows: "On 4th April, 1991, Heinz flew to Philadelphia to conduct the first in a series of investigative hearings to examine the telemarketing of medical equipment to Medicare beneficiaries. His Piper Aerostar PA60, carrying him and four other adults developed landing-gear trouble, a helicopter was dispatched to examine the problem. The helicopter's blades accidentally hit the bottom of the plane. Both aircraft crashed to the ground killing everyone on board."[1]

The next day a friend of his, John Tower was also killed in a plane crash.
