FORT WORTH — Big brother is about to step knee-deep into natural gas drilling. That's the word from the EPA's Region 6 chief, who spoke to a standing room only crowd of activists on Thursday night.

Dr. Al Armendariz  is the agency's new boss for the five-state area that includes Texas. He said  big changes are on the way — changes that could alter everything from what drilling facilities are allowed to emit to how they are monitored.
