The government's proposal to protect the northern spotted owl would cost the Pacific Northwest about 40,000 jobs in timbering and related industries by 1995, Fish and Wildlife Service economists said Monday. The estimated loss would be 57% more than earlier projections. Logging on the Northwest's federal lands would fall to less than one-fifth of historic levels, and the region's timber-related employment would drop to 13,259 jobs, according to the analysis.
