CO Oil and Gas Task Force Decision Delayed

The Denver Post reports that “picking the task force charged by Gov. John Hickenlooper to make recommendations on new gas and oil regulations has been delayed by an outpouring of interest.”  

“La Plata County Commissioner Gwen Lachelt, a Democrat from Durango who has been appointed chairwoman of the task force, said Hickenlooper had hoped to make the announcement last week, but an avalanche of applications has delayed the process.”  

“The hope is for an announcement on the membership this week.”
