Oregon House Republican leader Bruce Hanna questioned the transparency of Attorney General John Kroger's office as well as his commitment to a positive business climate.

Hanna wants Kroger to release documents relating to a former special counsel, who resigned last month after admitting to misrepresenting the office during a criminal investigation.

Attorney General John Kroger's former special counsel on environmental issues, Brent Foster, stepped down after admitting to misrepresenting his involvement in a criminal water pollution case against a fruit juice maker in the small northwestern Oregon town of Hood River.
