Oil and Gas: Public Safety

Oil and Gas Public Safety HB 18-1071 Neutral S. Agriculture, Natural Resources & Energy Rep. Joe Salazar, D-Thornton Morgan Cullen mcullen@cml.org

Last March, the Colorado Court of Appeals ruled in Martinez v. the COGCC that the general health, safety and welfare of Colorado residents is a condition “that must be fulfilled” before oil and gas activity is permitted. HB 18-1071 codifies this ruling in statute.
