The Environmental Protection Agency held a public hearing in Arlington, Texas, to get public feedback on proposed emissions rules for oil and natural gas drilling. About 140 people attended the hearing, including industry representatives who proposed to delay the rules to give drilling companies "more time for compliance," said Texas Oil and Gas Association spokesman Thomas Sullivan. "Some rules are worse than others and this rule is not the end of the world as long as we can get time to implement it," said Howard Feldman, the American Petroleum Institute's director of regulatory and scientific affairs.
