Former U.S. Attorney Appointed to Review
Concerns over Attorney General's Stock Ownership


October 04, 2004

Juneau, Alaska - Governor Frank H. Murkowski announced Sunday the appointment of former United States Attorney for Alaska Robert Bundy to review and make recommendations to the governor on issues raised regarding Attorney General Gregg Renkes' stock ownership and his role in promoting natural resource development.

"Bob is a person of impeccable character and legal credentials who was United States Attorney for Alaska during the Clinton administration," Murkowski said. "Our administration and the attorney general will provide him complete access to the people and information he needs to perform his tasks. His report will, of course, be made public."

"I have known and worked with Gregg Renkes for 18 years and have the utmost confidence in him and in his integrity. The attorney general and I take this matter very seriously," said the governor. "That's why I agree with the attorney general's request for an independent review of this issue to assure the public of the continued integrity of the attorney general and his office."

Murkowski said he had asked Renkes to become involved in the state's international trade efforts because of Renkes' knowledge and experience promoting Alaska's coal resource and his understanding of the need for that resource in Asia. "We have a long history of working together with the government of Taiwan to promote investment in Alaska," said the governor.
