Attorney General John Kroger
today responded in writing to requests for information from Sen. Ted Ferrioli
(R-John Day) regarding Kroger's former top environmental deputy, Brent Foster
under pressure last month after questions arose about his role in a Hood River County investigation into an alleged polluter.
Kroger pledged to cooperate with Ferrioli, the Senate minority leader. And Kroger also added a new piece of information: he has asked Dale Koch
, the former presiding judge of Multnomah County Court, to review Foster's work at DOJ and to determine whether his actions
related to liquified natural gas were proper.
