SALEM — The Oregon attorney general says it will cost $80,000 to review 21,500 e-mails sought by Republican lawmakers over the resignation of Brent Foster, the former special counsel for the environment.
Republican lawmakers want to know more about Foster’s role in the state’s opposition to development of liquefied natural gas facilities. One of those projects has gone broke.
Kroger says 64 e-mails that have been reviewed show no evidence of impropriety, but cannot be released because of attorney-client privilege.
Kroger has asked Marion County authorities to investigate Foster’s conduct in the investigation of water pollution charges against a Hood River juice manufacturer.
