`DIRTY DOZEN' PUBLICITY CALLED INOPPORTUNE

Democratic 1st District Congressional candidate Ron Holt had something to say about Congressman Jim Hansen making the "Dirty Dozen" list of the nation's worst lawmakers.

Holt said that because Utah is gaining a national reputation as a state that welcomes hazardous waste, the additional publicity about Hansen's disregard for the environment came at the most inopportune time."I am disturbed that we receive this news about Hansen just as Utah continues preparations to showcase itself as a Winter Olympics site - and as Utah's tourism industry continues to grow," Holt said.
