    Is there any connection to the departure of the Region 6 (South Central: TX, NM, LA, OK, AR) previous Administrtator, Dr. Al Armendariz?  He was a real go-getter for regulations and enforcement, especially here in Texas, and knew what the hell he was doing, too.  

    He decided NOT to testify last year before the US House Energy and Power Sub-committee, apparently at least partly due to interference by members of the House.  There were questions by the Sub-committee members about his communications with EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson.  Hard to tell for sure what went on.

    I don't recall all the details of his resignation.  May be a line worth pursuing.
