CO Gov. Pushes Oil & Gas Compromise Bill

The Denver Post reports that “Gov. John Hickenlooper’s proposal to give communities more control over oil and gas drilling is creating a broad consensus among some legislators, environmentalists and business groups: They all hate it.”  

“‘Right now both sides are furious and don’t like it,’ Hickenlooper said Tuesday.”  

“The prospects for a special legislative session to pass the proposed bill — thereby keeping local control initiatives backed by U.S. Rep. Jared Polis, D-Boulder, off the November ballot — hang in the balance.”
