Opportunity this election year is shrinking for the governor and legislative leaders to reach an agreement on a bill that could head off a series of ballot measures aimed at granting local authorities greater regulatory control over the oil-and-gas industry.
"People are familiar with this issue, all around the state. They're doing their own research and talking about fracking and local control... It's in the news."
BOULDER -- Supporters of local bans on the oil-and-gas drilling process known as fracking celebrated a key high court victory in Pennsylvania last week.
Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper says he understands citizen concerns about neighborhood gas drilling but maintains that passing local laws restricting the activity is the wrong way to address the problem.
BROOMFIELD, Colo. -- Residents here have joined Coloradans in our other Front Range towns and voted to either suspend or ban natural gas hydraulic fracturing within city limits.
Residents in towns sited in a line that stretches through a 250-square-mile gas field covered with wells like a picnic blanket overrun by ants, voted Tuesday to impose moratoriums and an outright ban on hydraulic fracturing within city limits.
