House Minority Leader looks to AG for answers on LNG controversy

BY SARAH ROSS, Oregon Politico, May 6, 2010 [here]

SALEM- House Minority Leader Bruce Hanna, R-Roseburg, sent a letter Thursday to Attorney General John Kroger asking him to release documents related to the AG’s former special counsel, Brent Foster.

Foster is currently under investigation by the Marion County District Attorney after misrepresenting himself in a criminal environmental case.

NorthCoastOregon.com had requested to see 69 e-mail documents having to do with Foster’s time in the AG’s office but was declined. Now Rep. Hanna is requesting that the same documents be released.

“Mr. Foster’s involvement in the LNG issue, as well as recent revelations regarding Hood River Juice, leads me to question your commitment to promoting a positive business climate and defending the rights of all Oregonians,” wrote Rep. Hanna.

Rep. Hanna expressed how troubled he was at the office’s “unwillingness to disclose documents relating to interactions between your office, various state agencies and various special interest groups.”

The House Minority Leader was also concerned that the Attorney General had granted special waivers to Foster during his work with special interest groups to “undermine the development of energy projects.”
