Fort Worth, TX –

Fort Worth is expected to finalize new regulation of gas drilling at next week's city council meeting. Last night the city council heard public feedback on possible distance, noise, and safety changes for the first time since an April explosion in the suburb of Forest Hill, which killed a well worker and required the evacuation of hundreds of homes. 90.1 reporter Catherine Cuellar discussed the details with KERA Morning Edition host Sam Baker.
