The agency that regulates oil and gas development in the state has hired a new director. Matt Lepore is the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission’s former attorney and takes the helm today, during what many see as a tumultuous time for the industry.

%22I%20think%20the%20state%20should%20develop%20its%20oil%20and%20gas%20resources%20including%20its%20shale%20gas%20and%20shale%20oil%20resources%20and%20you%20cannot%20do%20that%20without%20fracking%22.

KUNC’s State Capitol Bente Birkeland talked to Lepore about his new position and how he views the future of energy development in Colorado.
