Oil and Gas Setback Hearing

December 12, 2012

Energy regulators in Colorado are examining whether to increase the distance between oil and gas drilling sites and buildings such as schools and homes. They’re also considering a water-testing requirement that would need to be done before and after drilling takes place. Bente Birkeland has more from the state capitol.


Meanwhile, Colorado Springs City Council voted 7-2 yesterday to postpone a decision on oil and gas regulations. Councilors Merv Bennett and Angela Dougan cast the two dissenting votes.
