DENVER -- Two Colorado State House Democrats introduced legislation Friday in reaction to the deadly house explosion and fire in Firestone that killed two men last month.
The legislation would require all oil and gas companies to map every well they own in the state and provide that information to local governments.
In response, Gov. John Hickenlooper ordered a statewide review of oil and gas operations.
The bill is moving quickly because the General Assembly ends next week.
A committee hearing took place Friday afternoon to debate the bill. It passed the House State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee, but it faces an uphill climb with other lawmakers at the State Capitol.AlertMe
