Rep. Wayne Owens, D-Utah, is an environmentalist congressman in "serious jeopardy" of losing the 1990 election, warns a national conservation organization.
Owens is in trouble, says Environmental Action, a group that runs its list of "Dirty Dozen" members of the House and Senate whom it targets every election because of what it considers poor voting records on environmental legislation. The group also lists endorsements for candidates it likes.The group, in its September-October issue of "Environmental Action Magazine," lists its "Dirty Dozen" and endorsements. The magazine also publishes a list of "vulnerable incumbents" whom it likes and supports with contributions from its political action committee but whom it considers to be in bad political trouble.
Owens is one of 10 such congressional members listed.
Whether they are veterans or newcomers, the magazine says, "their voices and votes have made a difference."
